One-piece Compressive Construct

The Arcad® Clip was designed to help achieve optimum compression for fusion.

Delivered at ambient temperatures, the Nitinol (NiTi) ASTM F2063 memory metal structure induces balanced inward (“pushing”) forces. By pre-loading the clip with the Arcad® Forceps, the legs are then inserted into the guided pilot holes. Once the forceps are released, the memory of the metallic alloy exerts a compressive force on the legs as demonstrated in the diagrams above.

Immediate and continuous compression; the implant goes to work upon impaction and maintains compression throughout the course of treatment.

  • Migration resistant talons that allow for accurate placement and stable bone purchase.
  • Low profile / atraumatic contours that are designed to minimize soft tissue irritation.
  • Size range allows for precise fitting and anatomic compatibility.
