PEEK-OPTIMA™ Ultra Reinforced

Benefits of PEEK-OPTIMA Ultra Reinforced Polymer

An innovative composite technology, PEEK-OPTIMA Ultra Reinforced polymer combines our high performance polymer with multiple layers of strength for tailored stiffness and more flexible fixation.

Tailored Stiffness1

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-OPTIMA Ultra Reinforced throughout the 12 week study period - particularly within the initial 6 week period.

50X Greater Fatigue Resistance1

Plates containing PEEK-OPTIMA Ultra Reinforced polymer may have a 50x greater fatigue life than equivalent metal plates.

Success Stories

Hear what surgeons are saying about PEEK-OPTIMA Ultra Reinforced Polymer.

If you’re looking for the ideal implant to get fracture healing, you want something that’s durable, that’s going have...more cycles to fatigue. You want something that’s close to normal cortical bone, modulus of elasticity-wise, to get most ideal or biologic type fixation.

The greatest benefit [perioperatively] is ease of visualization…you can actually see the reductions. You’re not obscuring the joint surface or the bone fragment.
