Technology & Features
CarboFix nails, plates, and pedicle screws are made of continuous carbon fibers reinforced polymer.
The Polymer (PEEK) adhere the fibers together.
The continuous carbon fibers are layered in a unidirectional, longitudinal orientation, as well as in helical / diagonal orientation.
The material makes the CarboFix implants radiolucent, which is beneficial during surgery and follow up.
This composite material enables MRI & CT scan with no, or minimal artifacts for better soft tissue visualization. The material enables radiation therapy with no backscatters.
CarboFix implants portfolio includes, among others:
Intramedullary nails for Humerus, Tibia & Femur, as well as Ankle Arthrodesis nail
Plates for Distal Radius, Proximal Humerus & Distal Fibula
Pedicle Screws & Rods
