Basal Osteotomy / Open Wedge Plates

Anatomic, low-profile locking plates designed for the treatment
of Hallux Valgus. The system is fully compatible with the Airlock® Plating instrumentation platform.

  • High strength, low-profile 1mm thickness is designed to provide stability and limit the degree of incision
  • Opening wedge (Left & Right) plates come in 3mm, 4mm and 5mm spacer options to fit with the relevant correction
  • ISO5832-3 TA6V titanium alloy delivers strength and inherent modulus of elasticity
  • Threaded plate holes are compatible with locking screws to provide axial stability and non-locking screws for versatile range of insertion trajectories.
  • All implants are sterile packed for deployment to the OR via the cleanSTART™ Dispenser consoles







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.
