NiTE ForceTM Compression Implant

Providing implant and technique familiarity with the active compression and alignment of nitinol

Current Solutions Have Limitations

Fixed length rigid implants, can lead to loss of compression during bone realignment or remodeling. This may lead to delayed healing or non-union.

Cannulated Screws

broken screw
  • Fixed length rigid screws
  • May not maintain compression

Plates and Screws

Plates and screws
  • May be too rigid
  • Soft tissue issues

Nitinol Staples

  • Not intramedullary
  • Sub-optimal plane of fixation

The Solution: Active Continuous Compression

Our proprietary technology is designed to apply Active Compression throughout the healing process to promote more rapid bone healing and a decrease in nonunion.

Unlike the current industry standard implants, compression from the ActivOrtho technology is designed to be maintained up to 2mm as bones adjust.

Our technology has application opportunities to a broad range of upper and lower extremity fractures, fusions, and osteotomies.
