Benefits of PEEK-OPTIMA™ Ultra-Reinforced Polymer
An innovative composite technology, PEEK-OPTIMATM Ultra-Reinforced polymer combines our high performance polymer, PEEK-OPTIMA™ Natural, with multiple layers of carbon fiber for tailored stiffness and flexible fixation.
Tailored modulus of elasticity results in less rigid treatments than all-metal equivalents.
Earlier and Greater Callus Formation2
Demonstrated in pre-clinical testing with implants made of PEEK-OPTIMA Ultra-Reinforced throughout the 12 week study period - particularly within the initial 6 week period.
50X Greater Fatigue Resistance1
May provide an increased window of opportunity for healing to occur before fatigue-induced implant failure can occur.
