VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA (October 13, 2017) – The Orthopaedic Implant Company (“OIC”) launched today the OIC External Fixation System from the Meeting Hall in the Vancouver Convention Center, at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Orthopaedic Trauma Association.
“External fixators are one of the most expensive devices in use today. Furthermore, they provide provisional fixation which means additional device expenses follow. Helping alleviate these costs will have incredible impact for providers and patients,” said Todd Martens, VP of Product Design and Customer Experience, at OIC. “We tasked ourselves with raising the bar (and pin) for value in external fixation and the result is a simple and intuitive system offering all of the options required by today’s top surgeons.”
The OIC External Fixator System offers a patent-pending single clamp system that allows for bar-to-bar or bar-to-pin construction and has a multi-hole clamp option with straight and bent posts. It includes 5mm self-tapping and blunt half-pins and contains carbon fiber bars. The product is manufactured from non-ferrous materials in the U.S. .
