In2Bone’s CoLink View Plating incorporates a unique combination of titanium plates and optional titanium or high-performance PEEK polymer inserts. The CoLink View Plates deliver in sterile tubes with Transverse, Cross Joint style compression, PEEK Insert in place. Titanium Inserts featuring either transverse or graduated style compression are also available in separate sterile packaging.
The CoLink View Plates with PEEK Insert offer an X-ray transparent hub allowing the surgeon to literally watch the patient’s bone heal. The “x-ray see-through” hub is unique to this new In2Bones plating system, and one of the many device and instrument related innovations the company has and will continue to develop.
In addition to X-ray transparency, PEEK offers a close modus to the elasticity of bone. Bones need mechanical stress (elasticity) during the healing process. Stiffer, all metal implants may eliminate the positive elasticity and slow healing.
