Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) subsidiary DePuy Synthes said late last week that it launched the Maxframe multi-axial limb correction system designed to gradually correct bone or soft tissue deformities in the arm, leg, foot or ankle.
DePuy said the Maxframe system includes 3D planning software intended to create accurate patient treatment plans and reduce the number of X-rays required and the procedural complexity of treatments.
The newly launched limb fixation system also includes the company’s Assure-Strut technology designed to emit an audible click after patient adjustment of the device as the strut locks into place, DePuy Synthes said.
“The Maxframe System incorporates three clinically important advantages that help provide great accuracy of correction for the patient and streamline the surgical phase of care. The software eliminates significant sources of error inherent in earlier methods by removing the need to determine reference ring mounting parameters, as well as the requirement of ring orthogonality. The system also allows maximum flexibility in the location of strut attachment points on the ring which makes frame application easier, particularly in complex cases, and the Assure-Strut Technology allows the patient to confidently make strut adjustments,” Dr. J. Reid said in a press release.
Last month, DePuy Synthes said it launched its Trumatch titanium 3D-printed implants designed for use in facial reconstructions in the US.
