Treatment of Hallux Rigidus

A complete system for joint preparation and fixation in the treatment of
MTP pathologies, including hallux rigidus. Permits reduction, compression
and locking of the 1st MTP joint in optimal position for arthrodesis.

  • Intelligent design – Plate markers designate safe zone
    to avoid collision with plantar screw
  • .3mm thick titanium plates anatomically designed with
    10° of phalangeal valgus
  • Concave / Convex reamers – facilitate precise joint surface contouring
  • 4.0mm Nexis Headless Screw may be used in conjunction with the plate to provide additional plantar compressive fixation
  • Compression hole enhances stability across joint
  • Reamers available in a range of sizes







cleanSTART Technology

All implants are packaged sterile with self-adhesive data matrix labels and deployed by means of the cleanSTART Dispenser console. All Airlock Plates and Screws are ready for immediate use; hospital inventory is easily managed and reliably tracked. Tubes are color-coded by screw diameter. The wide choice of plate sizes and screw lengths ensures an ample portfolio of user-friendly implants.

Environmentally responsible.
Novastep reducing our carbon footprint. CleanSTART single-use instrument kits have neutral environmental impact when compared to the average CO2 equivalent annual emission of a hospital using conventional re-usable instrumentation.
