Kelyniam Global (KLYG), a maker of custom cranial implants announced today that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Bioplate, Inc., a leading manufacturer of cranial fixation devices for neurosurgery.
Dr. Mark Smith, Kelyniam’s Vice President of Business Development, said, “Bioplate’s line of plates and screws for cranial and craniofacial surgeons is a perfect fit with our customized PEEK implants. Both companies are recognized for their precision manufacturing and outstanding customer service, so this is a great fit from both cultural and clinical perspectives.”
Kelyniam recently received 510(k) approval for Integrated Fixation System (IFS) Tabs on their line of PEEK custom cranial implants. Bioplate’s titanium fixation screws can be used in conjunction with the IFS tabs, or the entire fixation system can be used by surgeons for routine craniectomies and facial reconstructions.

We can now offer surgeons multiple fixation options, which will increase our opportunities within hospitals that prefer sole-source purchasing.” said Laura Reed, Kelyniam’s National Sales Director.
