Flat End Olive Wire Photo

Two olive shapes are available. The flat end olive wire allows bone compression even when bone quality is poor.

Wire Bolt Photo

The wire bolt design is universal: cannulated and slotted. All smooth and olive wires come with a twist drill tip to avoid bone burning during insertion.

One-hand Wire Tensioner Photo

This is a newly designed one-hand wire tensioner with two head sizes for outer and inner ring holes. The tensioner grabs the wire and tensions it to up to 150 Kg of force. The indicator gives exact force reading at mid range, with ±5% deviation above and below. The tensioner handles 1.5 mm and 1.8 mm wires with equal performance.

Foot Plate Extenders Photo

Two types of footplate extenders are available: regular to accept a 1/2 ring and blunt to accept a full ring. Both types are available as standard and long.
