Designed specifically for hospitals to save on cost without compromising on quality, the Osteotec Silicone Finger Joint (OSF) is the flexible, dorsal hinged, intramedullary stemmed implant you need to know about.
The OSF was first manufactured 15 years ago with the ambition of helping patients suffering from disability due to osteoarthritis or post-traumatic arthritis. Since 1993 Osteotec has specialised in niche orthopaedic solutions, with expertise including upper and lower limb extremities.
The implant is made from high-grade, tear-resistant elastomer and indicated for interpositional arthroplasty of rheumatoid and osteoarthritic MCP (Metacarpophalangeal) and PIP (proximal interphalangeal) joints. Having recently expanded to Europe as well as the UK, the OSF has so far been implanted in over 10,000 joints.
What’s more, in direct response to requests from hand surgeons, additional smaller rasps corresponding to sizes 00, 0 and 1 have been introduced. Where traditional products may use the starter awl instrument to prepare the canals for these rasp sizes, the OSF accurately reproduces the corresponding implant stem to ensure optimal fit for every surgery.
These new rasps are available on request alongside a wide range of other excellent products. With the OSF selling at close to half the average cost of competitors, it would provide a fantastic cost-saving substitute should you be looking for a new supplier.
With 25 years experience, Osteotec is a trusted provider of orthopaedic joint replacement and is passionate about great prices and outstanding customer service.
