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.

Minimal Instrumentation

  • All required instruments are neatly configured in one elegant sterilization module.
  • The Implantation forceps for the Arcad Clips feature Novastep’s unique Lock and Load design that permits convenient, reproducible deployment and rapid insertion.
