3. The external fixation system includes 5 millimeter self-tapping and blunt half-pins and contains fiber bars.


4. Vice President of Product Design and Customer Experience at OIC Todd Martens said, "External fixators are one of the most expensive devices in use today. Furthermore, they provide provisional fixation, which means additional device expenses follow. Helping alleviate these costs will have incredible implant for

providers and patients."
