|Wright Medical Group, Inc. Introduces CORETRAK(TM) Articulating External Fixator for Foot Surgery|
The goal of Wright’s CORETRAK™ articulating fixator design is to simplify the procedure for the surgeon, the patient, and hospital staff. The device also addresses a growing need for minimally invasive solutions that respect the body’s natural ability to heal, which is particularly important for the growing population of diabetics who are already at a high risk for surgical complications.
Wright’s CORETRAK™ Articulating Fixator is provided in a sterile packaged procedure kit to save surgical facilities time and expense of cleaning and sterilizing. The kits may also be useful for military and emergency operations where time is critical. The new CORETRAK™ fixator will be made available immediately in the U.S. through Wright’s specialized foot and ankle sales force, and in select countries outside the U.S. through its direct and distributor-based sales representatives.
The CORETRAK™ fixator is the latest addition to Wright’s market-leading suite of products for foot and ankle surgeons. These include the CHARLOTTE™ family of reconstructive implants, DARCO® locked plating systems, ORTHOLOC™ variable angle plates, the BIOARCH® subtalar implant, CANCELLO-PURE® and BIOFOAM™ osteotomy wedge systems, ENDO-FUSE™ implants, DART-FIRE™ small screw systems, GRAFTJACKET® regenerative tissue matrix, and the INBONE® total ankle.
