Oct. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Novastep, Inc., and its affiliates (“Novastep” or the “Company”), a global medical technologies company specializing in the foot and ankle, has further expanded its coverage of midfoot and rearfoot indications with the addition of a full range of Nexis® 5.0 and 7.0mm headless, cannulated compression screws.
The implants feature all of the hallmark design attributes inherent to the Company’s Nexis® brand, including helical thread flutes that are self-drilling, self-tapping and reverse-cutting; Torx drive recess interfaces for optimal force distribution and tapered, self-penetrating compression cones. Loïc Girod, Novastep’s Vice President of Research and Development, noted that “The Nexis® system provides surgeons with a complete and versatile selection of sterile packaged, low-profile, cannulated screws that are designed to address a broad spectrum of midfoot and hindfoot pathologies.”
The system is likewise supported with a robust instrumentation platform that is neatly stored in a versatile, light-weight, space-saving tray to combine the Nexis® 5.0 and 7.0mm instruments with interchangeable Nexis® 4.0mm headless screw or Arcad 18/20/25mm nitinol compression clip instrument modules that serve to further enhance its versatility. “Operating room efficiency and cost reduction are prime areas of focus for Novastep” said Joseph Larsen, DPM of ProHealthCare Foot & Ankle in New York; adding that “Novastep’s implant and cleanSTART® deployment technologies provide a systematized logistics platform that is easily customizable to fit virtually anyone’s needs and substantially reduces inventory requirements and sterile field volumes.”
All Novastep implants are packaged sterile in quickSTACK™ containers or quickTUBE™ nested cylinders, depending on the size and configuration of the product. The STACKS and TUBES are housed and organized in the cleanSTART® Implant Dispenser console, which may be uniquely tailored to address individual surgeon preferences.
