Versatile, Adaptable, Adjustable

The nearly endless array of Fusionframe™ configurations ensures the right construct for every indication. The System provides full weight bearing
stability and allows you to precisely re – align bones, correct deformities, apply compressive forces, control the gradual distraction of bone fragments, reduce, stabilize and manage fractures. Adjustments may be executed intra and post operatively.

The Fusionframe™ is fully compatible with other Novastep products such as the Nexis Headless, Headed and Snap – off Screws, Lync Hammertoe Implants, Arcad Compression Clips, Airlock Plates and bioSTART portfolio.

Dynamometric Wire Tensioner

The Fusionframe™ Wire Tensioner features a ratcheted plier – handle mechanism that delivers accurate, “one – pump” tensioning with maximum efficiency and minimum effort. The instrument comes equipped with interchangeable jaws for precise access to all possible frame contours.
