Benefits of PEEK-OPTIMA™ Ultra-Reinforced Polymer
An innovative composite technology, PEEK-OPTIMATM Ultra-Reinforced polymer combines our high performance polymer with multiple layers of strength for tailored stiffness and more flexible fixation.
Tailored modulus of elasticity results in less rigid treatments than all-metal equivalents.
Earlier and Greater Callus Formation2
Results of pre-clinical testing demonstrated earlier and greater callus formation with implants made of PEEK-OPTIMATM Ultra-Reinforced throughout the 12 week study period - particularly within the initial 6 week period.
50X Greater Fatigue Resistance1
Plates containing PEEK-OPTIMATM Ultra-Reinforced polymer may have a 50x greater fatigue life than equivalent metal plates.
