About this product

Division: Trauma
Category: External Fixators

As a component of the AO family of external fixators, the joint bridging mobile fixator enables a high degree of flexibility thanks to its modular frame construction. The free pin placement allows greater adaptation to the particular circumstances of each injury. The Elbow Hinge as the central element is compatible with fixation components of large and medium-size external fixators. This increases the flexibility in selecting a patient-specific, optimum form of therapy. Furthermore, little effort is required to switch from rigid to movable external fixation. The radiolucency of the Elbow Hinge Fixator helps you find the anatomical joint axis and makes it easier to position the mechanical axis of the Elbow Hinge. Patients with external fixators can be reliably examined at later times in magnetic resonance tomograms.
