Instratek, a privately held medical device company focused on minimally invasive endoscopic surgery and extremity implants, announces the domestic launch of the HammerFIT Extremity Reamer System for hammertoe surgery.
HammerFIT is a sterile, single-use reaming system that contains cup and cone bone reamers which are used to create convex and concave surfaces during hammertoe surgery. Once the reamers have been used to resurface the bones of the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint, the surgeon may use their arthrodesis implant of choice.
Utilizing cup and cone reamers aids in fusion by maximizing bony contact surface area. HammerFIT reamers may be used for all hammertoe procedures regardless of implant choice.
In addition to being sold separately in a sterile kit, HammerFIT reamers are also included in Instratek’s ToeTac Hammertoe Fixation System. The ToeTac implant is a one-piece, cannulated PEEK device that threads into the middle phalanx and press-fits into the proximal phalanx, providing a stable construct for PIP fusions.
PEEK is a non-resorbable polymer that mimics the stiffness of bone and has high fatigue strength.
This device is intended for orthopaedic and podiatric surgery. HammerFIT is available in the U.S. through Instratek’s distributor-based sales force and by contacting Instratek directly.
HammerFIT is the latest addition to Instratek’s innovative product solutions for foot & ankle and hand surgery.
Other innovative products include ToeTac hammertoe implants, STAPiX nitinol staples, Jones-FX fifth metatarsal screws, Mini Cannulated Titanium Headed & Headless screws, CMC Cable FIX™, Endotrac-Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release System, Endoscopic Trigger Finger Release, Endoscopic Plantar Fasciotomy, Endoscopic Gastrocnemius Release, Endoscopic Decompression of the Intermetatarsal Nerve, and the Sub-Talar Lok arthroereisis implant.
