Carbon Fiber Implants Technology
CarboFix “Piccolo” nails & plates are made of continuous carbon fibers reinforced polymer. The continuous carbon fibers are woven in a unidirectional orientation at the core of the nail. The core is wrapped by additional helical fibers. The CarboFix “Piccolo” plates are made out of continuous carbon fibers in longitudinal as well as diagonal orientation.
The material makes the CarboFix “Piccolo” nails and plates 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 “Piccolo” 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
