Surgical implant material has changed over time, from metal to stainless steel to titanium.
In recent decades a new material, carbon-fibre-reinforced polyether ether ketone (CFR Peek), has been introduced. Many Locking plates based on this polymer has developed lately as an alternative to conventional metallic devices.
The advantage of this kind of plates include the lack of metal allergies, radiolucency, and the high resistance associated to loading forces.
Many articles and many studies has confirmed the quality of this polymer.
We have the technology and the experience for this kind of products.
