Characteristics of the Titanium Elastic Pin (TEP) application
The Titanium Elastic Pin (TEP) product group of Medimetal is primarily suitable to treat limb injuries of children. The usage of one or more pins in the medullary cavity keeps the bone in the anatomically correct position. The pin product range is only produced from titanium alloy material. Its special material-quality ensures both large load-bearing capacity and flexibility. The pins are available in five different diameters, which are easy to distinguish due to the colored, biocompatible surface treatment of the titanium alloy. The length of the pins can be cut on demand.
The pin-ends are flattened and curved, which provides better repositioning and more secure anchoring.
