The Stryker Hoffmann LRF System is intended for fixation of fractures, joint contractures and more.
Kalamazool, Mich.-based Stryker Corporation has introduced a new addition to the Hoffmann LRF Circular External Fixation System: Slotted Plates. Slotted plates can be used to build a variety of offset component assemblies. Slotted plates are commonly used as modular ring “tabs” to capture threaded rods or struts that do not directly align with adjacent rings. Slotted plates are designed to accommodate both 6 mm and 8 mm diameter components. In addition to offsetting 6mm threaded rods, slotted plates can be used to attach components such as telescopic struts and pin/wire fixation components.
The Stryker Hoffmann LRF (Limb Reconstruction Frame) System is intended for fixation of fractures, joint contractures, fusions, limb lengthening, deformity correction, bone and soft tissue reconstruction in pediatric patients and adults.
