FIXUS 22 - Hand

The FIXUS 22 is designed for small bone usage. It has been designed to answer the growing needs of small-bone injuries by ensuring ease-of-use, versatility and patient comfort. The overall size of the fixator makes it the most compact and light weighted device offered today. The low profile carbon 3 mm bar and aluminum ball clamp assembly is excellent for patient comfort, while still intending to maintain secure strength and durability.

Fixus offers the FIXUS 22 in three basic setups; rigid fixator, flexible fixator and fixator with compression-distraction. The flexible fixator has the unique, and patented dynamic flexion which is a proven aid in the prevention of post treatment finger joint stiffness. The device is adjustable and allows a step-less control of poliaxial finger movement with a step-less range of 30 degrees in all directions.

Benefits
• Ball clamps can be positioned in a variety of ways to allow for optimal pin
placement, easy frame adaptability, and access to the locking screws
• Unique and patented dynamic flexion device to avoid finger joint stiffness
• Ball clamps and round pin holders allow insertion of pins parallel or in a V
convergent or divergent directions
• Radiolucent carbon fiber rod allows complete fracture visualization

FIXUS 33 - Wrist

The FIXUS 33 is a highly flexible, lightweight system specially designed for the small bone applications. The Fixus 33 has been designed in such a way that the fixator has no fixed size and can be used with any carbon size from 80mm up to 250mm, which allows for small bone fractures to longer humerus applications while maintaining the same easy to use lightweight frame.

The FIXUS 33 comes in three basic setups, the rigid fixator, the flexible fixator and non-bridging radius fixator.

The unique and patented dynamic flexion device of the Fixus 33 is a proven aid in the prevention of post treatment joint stiffness. The device is adjustable and allows a step-less control of wrist joint movement from rigid to a range of 30 degrees. The FIXUS 33 is a highly stable, lightweight fixator for distal radius fractures. It can be used for the most complex extra-articular or trans-articular applications. When desired, the wrist joint can be mobilized without displacement of fracture fragments. Extra-articular applications allow motion from day one and improved patient function during treatment with preserved volar tilt.

Benefits
• Radiolucent carbon fiber rod, in sizes from 80 to 250mm, allowing complete
fracture visualization
• Unique and patented dynamic flexion device to avoid joint stiffness
• Ball clamps can be positioned in a variety of ways to allow for optimal pin
placement, easy frame adaptability, and access to the locking screws
• Modular frame components allow independent pin placement and enables
the surgeon to build the frame around the fracture
• Radiolucent carbon fiber rod allows complete fracture visualization

FIXUS 66 - Elbow

The FIXUS 66 Elbow fixator extends the range of the FIXUS 66 System to treat post-traumatic elbow stiffness as well as some acute elbow trauma. The benefit for this system is that it relies on the advantages of the FIXUS 66 system with its lightweight, versatile and easy to use system. As all the Fixus External Fixation systems, the FIXUS 66 Elbow can be used either as a monolateral or bilateral configuration.

The Elbow hinge for the FIXUS 66 is designed in a way that it absorbs all force during flexion and extension while securing a stable system around the pin sides and stable axis.

The FIXUS 66 Elbow fixator has a unique way to target the anatomical joint axis in the humerus. Where conventional systems rely on one target device, Fixus has designed a double targeting device for even better and quicker placement. This allows for quicker placement and less adjusting to find the right axis for smooth rotational motion.

Benefits
• FIXUS 66 stability, versatility and easy to use basic frame
• Double (radiolucent) targeting device to find the anatomical joint axis
• Allows for controlled distraction of the joint
• Full range of motion to place the Humerus and Ulna pins to avoid nerves
• Allows for fully controlled rotational motion
Range of motion from 0 (stretched arm) to 125 degrees flexion

FIXUS 66 - Trauma

The FIXUS 66 Trauma fixator is specially designed for long bone applications with a short to medium long treatment period. Fixus universal flexible system allows for high flexibility in placement and high stability. The base of the FIXUS 66 Trauma fixator exists of a radiolucent specially developed carbon rod for extra stability, stiffness and excellent fracture visualization. Combined with a minimum of amount of parts makes the FIXUS 66 a user friendly and highly stable fixator.

The FIXUS 66 fixator entails fixus design philosophy to place pins in a bi-planar position for more stability without adding additional parts. Together with the bi-planar option the FIXUS 66 fixator offers a comprehensive surgical solution for unrestricted manipulation of the fracture while the fixator is in place. Making it easy to adjust the alignment of the fracture without having to reconfigure the whole system.

The versatility in pin placement combined with a linear fixator gives the surgeon maximum option to place the pins and avoid soft tissue damage without losing the comfort of a rigid system.

Benefits
• Designed for independent pin placement in proximal & distal fractures
• Ball clamps and round pin holders allow insertion of pins parallel
or in a V pin configuration
• Radiolucent carbon fiber rod allows complete fracture visualization
• Full range of motion to place the Humerus and Ulna pins to avoid nerves
• Stable system for early weight bearing and mobilization
• Linear fixator with maximum freedom of pin placement
• Compatible with the Fixus 55 hybrid system

FIXUS 66 - Hybrid

The FIXUS 66 Hybrid Fixator was designed to provide maximum support for the bone in a simple device, capable of dealing with simple and complex trauma cases.

Tensioned Kirschner wires provide stable fixation in metaphysical bone. It is this property that has been responsible for their successful use in metaphysical and articular fractures.

The use of fully tensioned wires off a single ring increases this stability to the extent that it will support an unstable tibial plateau fracture. Diaphysis fixation is performed with 5mm pins which achieve good purchase in thick cortical bone. Application of these pins is simplified by the use of a standard round pin holders, which spreads the load around the fixator.

The avoidance of screws in the metaphysical ring allows the device to retain its important elastic, self-stiffening properties, similar to the Ilizarov fixator. The FIXUS 66 Hybrid Fixtor is particularly indicated for high energy or comminuted Schatzker 4-6 fractures. Simple, oblique unstable metaphysic-disphyseal segments are well controlled but comminuted fracture lines greater than 45 degrees to the shaft may require additional fixation.

Benefits
• Unlimited possibilities, and rapid assembly
• Full ring set to protect soft tissue
• Fewer components than traditional systems
