The OsteoWeld ultrasonic welding system uses high frequency vibratory energy to intracorporeally weld biodegradable (or non-biodegradable) implants quickly and safely in both arthroscopic and endoscopic environments.
The system consists of an implant, hand piece and a multi-use generator. Both PEEK and PLLA implants for use with the system have received 510(k) clearance for use in Trauma and Sports Medicine. The generator and hand pieces have been evaluated to the IEC60601-1 electrical safety standard.
- Broad surgical applications ranging from arthoplasty and spine to urology
- Welding times as short as 0.2 - 0.7 seconds
- Variable output power algorithm with field upgradeability
- 510K approval for PLLA and PEEK Intracorporeal welding
