Hybrid Materials and Manufacturing

The plates are not only visually green, but also environmentally green. Produced using a zero waste process, these plates are made through a proprietary additive manufacturing (3D printing) and injection molding process.

Tapered proximal end easily and comfortably fits under soft tissue upon insertion

Special syndesmotic holes are designed for the 4.3mm screws and standard suture buttons. They are anatomically angled 35°, posterior to anterior

Screw heads sit below the plate surface when fully engaged

Ø2.9mm and Ø3.7mm locking and non-locking screws can be placed up to 15° off-axis

Plate holes allow for Ø2.9mm and Ø3.7mm locking and non-locking screws

Proprietary Hybrid Titanium/ PEEK construction is ortholucent and malleable

Low profile, contoured plate offers strength while reducing soft tissue irritation

Distal fibula screw cluster allows for multiple points of fixation

Additive manufacturing offers the capability to mirror complex anatomy and create very smooth contours that minimize soft tissue irritation. This technology creates the shell structure of the plate which offers the thinnest section of titanium on the market, giving Apollo its radiolucent properties.* * PEEK pellets are melted and injected into a custom mold. Any left over sprues or scrap can be reground into the raw material and used again. Components produced using additive manufacturing require minimal to no additional machining and create no titanium waste.

Screw Technology

The unique combination of additive manufactured titanium and injection molded PEEK leads to the patent pending screw locking technology of PEEKLOCTM

Screw mount below the plate surface

Even angled screws remain flush to the plate

Self-countersinking feature allows surgeon to skip countersinking step

PEEKLOCTM and Self-countersinking Screws

All Apollo locking and non-locking screws can be placed up to 15° off-axis.

The PEEK construct allows for a quick thread engagement, and smooth tactile feel, while the proprietary hidden titanium structure enforces the solid locking strength. PEEKLOCTM technology creates the elastic locking friction and greatly reduces the risk of cold-welding during screw insertion.

Patent pending PEEKLOCTM system creates elastic friction when locking screw in place

PEEKLOCTM provides a quick thread engagement and smooth tactile feel when locking screw in place

PEEKLOCTM creates a strong interface between the screw and plate, with better cantilever strength and accepting higher torque strength

Ortholucent

This thin cross-sectional structure of titanium gives the plates “ortholucency”, a unique advantage over traditional metal implants where the radiolucent properties drastically improve the visualization of bones and joint spaces. Intraoperatively, surgeons benefit from improved fracture and joint reduction imaging, while postoperatively they can better assess if bone is healing properly, potentially leading to earlier weight bearing decisions.
