OrthoMed, Inc. Introduces Re-Usable Nitinol Spinal Trial Rods That Offer Flexibility and Strength
Silicone covered memory metal offers multi-use trial rods for lumbar fixation
Tigard, OR – Sept. 25, 2019 –
OrthoMed Inc. today announced the addition of multi-use nitinol trial rods for spine surgery to its surgical instrumentation catalog.
OrthoMed’s innovative multi-use flexible silicone trial rods with nitinol wire center relax when they’re autoclaved, returning the rod to its original shape. The new memory metal nickel titanium offers unmatched flexibility and strength for use in a shape memory alloy-assisted correction rod for scoliosis and other lumbar fixation applications.
The strength combined with flexibility of nitinol makes these silicone-covered trial rods the solution of choice for surgeons seeking ease of use and superior precision with lumbar correction of spinal deformities or degeneration such as lumbar spondylolisthesis or degenerative disc disease.
The greater ease of use can result in shorter fitting times and superior positioning precision, which can reduce total surgery time and blood loss.
The nitinol memory alloy is characterized by its malleability at low temperatures and its ability to return to a preconfigured shape above its activation temperature allowing multiple use of these correction tools after autoclaving.
“Orthomed has an outstanding track record at providing hospitals and OEMs with innovative solutions to their instruments and implants needs”, said Ron Dyches, President. “The addition of the nitinol rods to our extensive product offering demonstrates our relentless commitment to continuously improving efficiency and clinical outcomes in spine surgery.”
OEM’s adding the OrthoMed multi-use flexible silicone trial rods are leading the market in providing an advanced solution to surgeons frustrated by current trial rods. OrthoMed offers standard off-the-shelf or custom lengths, available in your company logo colors.
See for yourself the advantages of multi-use flexible silicone trial rods with nitinol at NASS September 25-27, 2019. OrthoMed will be exhibiting its full range of surgical instrumentation at Booth #5211.
