Ortholox®Gh UHMWPE AC Joint Internal Bracing System Specifications
Ortholox®Gh UHMWPE AC Joint Internal Bracing System is manufactured from Medical Degree Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene material.
For Ortholox®Gh UHMWPE ACJ System, very thin fibers are woven in the form of bands with a width of 5 mm to form a multifilament material.
*By means of its wide cross section, it eliminates single-point stress.
*Pressure on bone tissue is distributed and thus decreased thanks to the wide surface of the band.
*By means of its wide surface, it is more reliable in osteoporotic bones when compared to metal cables or cerclage wires.
*Each band has a load carrying capacity of over 1600 N. (4 bands=6400 N)
Ortholox®Gh UHMWPE ACJ System is highly flexible, it can be manipulated easily.
In Ortholox®Gh UHMWPE ACJ System thanks to the patented torque applicable Tensioner, it is ensured that the fragments are brought closer easily at the appropriate tension. It provides a simple, effective and easy-to-use surgery with only 3 instruments.
In Ortholox®Gh UHMWPE ACJ System, a bendable titanium guide strip and a patented locking block that is manufactured from highly biocompatible (TI-6AL-4V-ELI) alloy is used.
*It is MRI compatible.
*It has a high load carrying capacity.
*Once the locking block is screwed and fixed, it does not loosen or unlock by itself.
*During the procedure, in order to re-apply tension, loosening the screw of the locking block is enough. Thus, OR time is shortened.
*Since osteotomy or bone screw is not required during surgery, it allows for minimal invasive application with its simple and fast instrumentation.
