WishBone Medical is designing and developing its own guided growth plate and instrumentation systems in sterile packed, single use, disposable kits. This product will come in both the 2-hole and 4-hole plates systems in multiple sizes as well as options in stainless steel and titanium. The anticipated launch will be in first quarter 2019, following FDA Clearance.
Nick Deeter, Chairman of the Board WishBone Medical, said, “We are excited to enter into this license agreement of patented technologies to develop, produce and sell our guided growth systems. These systems will provide global access in sterile packed, single use disposable kits for children who are suffering with these pediatric deformities around the world.” Deeter added, “With this sterile packed system, we can go into hospitals and surgery centers that have not had access to the traditional reusable systems.”
Dr. Robert von Seggern, executive vice president at WishBone Medical, commented, “As a dedicated pediatric orthopedic company, WishBone Medical needed this product to round out its large portfolio of orthopedic implants designed specifically for children with orthopedic issues.”
