Freedom Lock is the latest in locking technology and is an innovative mechanism that allows for 15° of freedom with screw placement. Unlike other systems, the screws do not cut their threads (leaving small chips of metal floating around), but instead have a unique thread profile on the screw head that allows the screw to enter the plate threads at different angles. The Freedom Lock implants are made from a unique Ti-6AI-4V alloy with a proprietary surface treatment that allows it to outperform the standard titanium implants. This combination of the unique Ti alloy and the proprietary surface finish has been recognized as providing greater strength, biocompatibility and enhanced stiffness. The surface treatment also increases fatigue strength and improves surface characteristics.
Features and benefits:
Innovative design/polyaxial (15°)
Doesn’t cut threads
Stiffness equivalents to SS limited contact plates
Produced according to all FDA, ASTM, ISO and GMP standards
