The Acumed® Acu-Loc® 2 Plating System is a next-generation solution in plating fixation that focuses on complete implant options and a streamlined surgical process. This comprehensive system includes several plate families to give surgeons the freedom to choose between distal or proximal sitting plates, three different plate extension options and fragment specific plating options. The system also includes instrumentation for plate placement and fracture management
The Acumed® Acu-Loc® Wrist Spanning Plate is designed to address complex distal radius fractures. This temporary fixator is designed to hold the wrist in distraction and to provide ligamentotaxis to the wrist on a temporary basis while the distal radius heals. Similar to an external fixation device, the Acu-Loc® Wrist Spanning Plate may be used if the distal radius is too comminuted for an Acu-Loc® 2 or other distal radius plate. The advantage of this plate is its simplicity using the concept of ligamentotaxis to apply circumferential pressure created by distracting the affected area to push fragments back in place
The Acumed® Total Wrist Fusion Plating System was designed for wrist arthrodesis due to deformities associated with degenerative arthritis, brachial plexus palsies, and spastic disorders. This five plate system features both innovative and traditional designs. Specifically, four of the five plates are positioned on the second metacarpal. These left and right specific designs are positioned on the second metacarpal which may reduce extensor tendon irritation. Additionally, the fifth plate is a neutral option that is placed on the third metacarpal and developed for use with a proximal row carpectomy.
The MOTEC® wrist joint prosthesis is a modular prosthesis consisting of four parts, providing the surgeon with 144 combinations closely replicating the patientâ€™s normal wrist joint range of motion. The articulation is metal-to-metal with ball and socket articulation made of cobalt chrome molybdenum alloy treated with chromium nitride.
