Anatomical implant

 

• The design of this implant is the result of a proprietary state-of-the-art mapping technology to establish the maximum congruence between the plate and the bone,

 

• The plate is made of Grade 2 Titanium for an easier adaptation to first tarsometatarsal (TMT1) joint anatomies when using bending pliers.
