Project Description

Cannulated Great Toe Metatarsal & Phalengeal Hemi Resurfacing Implants

Phal-hemi-x-ray-pic_edit

Description:

Activize offers two types of cannulated hemi implants; elliptical and concave to resurface the base of the proximal phalanx, and spherical to replace the head of a metatarsal. 5 concave and 5 convex sizes are available to replace the Hallux. Each hemi device is individually machined. The articular surface is mirror finished to minimize friction and is shaped to maintain range of motion without inducing pain or altering the foot biomechanics.

Cannulation provides a mechanism for precise congruent positioning of the implant. A proprietary driver is used to advance the implant into the desired position. The two positioning holes provide a mechanism for suturing (optional) the implant to the soft tissue while osseous integration proceeds naturally.

Key Features

  • Anatomically compatible
  • Elliptical/ spherical shape for articular surface
  • Cannulation for precise positioning
  • CoCrMo
