Ilizarov apparatus with increased strength properties for the treatment of trauma patients

Application: external fixation of bones and their fragments in the restoration of the musculoskeletal system.

Advantages: when manufacturing of fixtures is specifically designed thermo-mechanical hardening technology carried out in order to counteract mechanical stress, in particular bending moments. The hard­ness is 35–40 HRC. This allows one to maintain stiffness of the device when carrying out treatment.

Key features: all products are made from special high quality stainless steel (which is proved by inter­national quality standard ISO 5832-1; 2007; ASTM F136-12a and relevant certificates), which is corrosion resistant in an environment of biological fluids and tissues.

Developed: Scientific-Technological Park of BNTU «Polytechnic», Supervisor – Sergei Orlovskij.
