Integra® External Fixation System


The Integra® External Fixation System is a single-use modular external fixator consisting of the following components: rings, foot plates, half pin bone screws, straight/olive k-wires, rods, nuts, bolts, clamps, and other modular fixator components. Special instruments (e.g. wrenches) are required for proper assembly of the apparatus. Adjustment of the fixator is possible during the course of treatment.
