With Tapered Compression Slot
- Low Profile, Anatomic Design, Type II Anodized
- Mechanical Compression Designed to Stimulate the Fusion Process
The CoLink®NX System uses Tapered Compression Slot Technology to create mechanical compression across the fusion site. Up to 1.5mm of compression is possible using the Compression Slot, an elliptical slot with progressive depth. With the Colink®NX Plate, as the non-locking slot Screw is tightened, it seats deeper into the slot, sliding the Plate and attached phalanx proximally, closing and compressing the fusion site. The Compression Slot is featured on the CoLink®NX MTP and Utility Plates.
