ADDISON, Texas (PRBuzz) June 6, 2012 — OsteoMed, LLC, a leading, privately held medical device company specializing in small bone implants and biologics; has announced the launch of its new Fusion module as an addition to the Hand Plating System. Hand Fusion is designed to provide stable fixation of the PIP joint at a natural resting angle. The system’s innovative design allows the patient’s finger to be fused between 20-55°. The unique angle of the Hand Fusion Plate provides the patient the ability to resume daily activity. The Fusion Screw, with its innovative design, is the first cannulated, compression, variable-angle locking screw.
Dave Kelly, Vice President of Small Bone Orthopedics said, “We are all really excited about our newest product launch for the upper extremity specialist. The Fusion module is a great complementary product to our existing Hand Plating System [HPS] and continues to demonstrate OsteoMed’s commitment to provide innovative product offerings.”
The Fusion module has been release for use with OsteoMed’s Hand Plating System, also called HPS, utilizing the variable-angle locking screws from the 1.6mm and 2.0mm modules.

Adding the Hand Fusion module to the Hand Plating System provides surgeons expanded solutions for surgeries of the hand.
