The Technology

Proprietary (Ortholucent) technology platform that combines the strength of titanium
with a unique blend of polyetheretherketone (PEEK) / carbon fiber reinforced,
a radiolucent polymer. This proprietary process of combining materials allows for skeletal visualization and has the potential for promoting fracture healing.

the bony structures on radiograph

Manufacturing Techniques

The lower titanium load which is reinforced by PEEK (polyetheretherketone) provides clear bone visibility during plain radiography as well as less scatter with advanced imaging techniques. Improved visualization enables the clinician to interpret bone healing with greater confidence leading to faster advancement of recovery protocols.

Proprietary Ti/PEEK bonding

  • PEEK engages with a proprietary titanium Micro-Structure
  • The bond is stronger than PEEK (the shear strength is equivalent to PEEK strength).

Injection Molding

  • High temperature and pressure of injection molding process ensures complete integrated bond between PEEK and titanium.
  • Economic use of PEEK minimizes waste and cost.

Additive Manufacturing
(3D Printing)

  • Unique profile structures can be designed to minimize titanium thickness for ortholucent applications yet maintain structural strength requirements.
  • Any complex anatomical structure can be built at no additional cost.
  • Smoother edges and anatomical matching minimize soft tissue irritation.
  • Economic use of titanium powder minimizes waste and cost.

Clinical Application

The benefits of Ortholucent technology is improved visualization of fracture fixation
and bone alignment, easier assessment of bone healing because of the improved visualization. This would also apply to fusions. Reduced interference with advanced imaging such as MRI or CAT scan.

Creed Screws

Clear confidence for better results

The radiotranslucent properties of the Creed Cannulated Screws provide a significant clinical advantage over traditional metal implants by drastically improving the visualization of bones and joint spaces. Surgeons can better assess post-operative healing by “seeing through” the implant and down to the bony structures on radiographs.

Circular Fixator Versatile | Adaptable | Adjustable

The FusionFrame Ring Lock System is the updated Ilizarov method configuration of the circular external fixation apparatus developed to specifically address the extensive requirements of foot and ankle specialists. The FusionFrame system provides the ability to customize frames specific to patient needs, from static frames through complex foot & ankle deformities.
