PitStop Subtalar Implant for the Pediatric and Adult Populations
By Jon Simon, Senior VP of Marketing | Friday, December 21, 2018
In the current state of the extremities market landscape, there is a need for equipping surgeons with innovative products and simple, streamlined instruments. With this focus, prominent experts from orthopedic departments and the governing bodies have laid the cornerstone of In2Bones Global, Inc., which is a growing company taking an immense global approach to advance the science and technology in the field of extremity implants. In2Bones is currently focused on expanding the surgical implants and devices to be released into the market by launching innovative products. In2Bones innovative devices and implants solve many issues and challenges that are posed by the legacy device lines to the surgeons.
“Implant manufacture representatives usually bring in surgical trays with instruments, fixation devices, drill bits, and screws that have gone through countless re-sterilization processes,” explains Alan Taylor, CEO, and president of In2Bones. In2Bones also received clearance for an addition to its CoLink Forefoot Bone Plating System from USFDA, which is used to stabilize bones during post-surgical healing processes. This addition is marketed with the brand name CoLink View. CoLink View Plates consists of X-ray transparent PEEK (polyether ether ketone) hub that enables surgeons to monitor bone healing process after the surgery.
In2Bones has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) for new Fracture and Correction system, and these are marketed under the brand names of 5MSTM Fracture Repair System and CoLagTM Locking Compression Screw System. Among all the In2Bones U.S. products, the 5MS and CaLog implants are delivered in pre-sterilizing packages to the individuals and these are UDI (Unique Device Identifiers) compliant and completely traceable.
In2Bones recently announced the launch of its unique “see through” PitStop® implant which is manufactured from the high-performance polymer called PEEK which is radiolucent. PitStop allows the surgical correction of flat foot deformity in pediatric and adult populations, and this implant restores the stability of the patients arch during the gait or walking process. Flatfoot is one of the most common foot deformities that is found in adolescence and continues to the adulthood. Other traditional metallic subtalar implants are currently available, but these cause pain and biomechanical adaptation in some instances. Being softer and less stiff, PEEK is preferred for such implants, and the rate of patient tolerance is high when compared to the other traditional implants. In2Bones is committed to expanding the extremities market by bringing innovative technological advancements which are bound to improve the surgical outcomes and patient healthcare.
