Pelvic Fixator

The Pelvic Fixator™ is an adjustable link system for rapid pelvic stabilization. Stabilization with the Orthofix Pelvic Fixator is achieved by means of self-drilling screws inserted into the pelvis, and a fixator assembly which consists of two primary links joined by a connector unit. The simplicity of the system eases handling of the fixator and the ball-joints facilitate fracture reduction. Furthermore, the sliding link system allows the fixator to cover a wide range of pelvic sizes, thus significantly reducing the inventory.
