Tyber Medical asserts the launch of TyFix
Tyber Medical which is a privately held company emphasizing on developing breakthrough medical devices for private label opportunities and facilitating the science of bioengineered surfaces launches TyFix which is an all-in-one extremity joint fixation system.
Dr. Michael Gentile, DPM, FACFAS, at Cornell Surgery Center in Beaverton, performed one of the first procedures utilizing the TyFix System said Dr. Gentile commented, “The instrumentation design is efficient and intuitive. A versatile implant with a myriad of sizes and angle options for a reliable fit and natural toe position.”
The company received 510(k) clearance for the breakthrough system that lessens the need for ancillary instrumentation for a wide range of bone fixation procedures. The TyFix System, designed for a variety of procedures, including correction of Hammertoe deformities, allows realignment to relieve pain and discomfort. The integrated implant/instrument design, first of its kind, creates value by minimizing the number of procedure steps, improving operating room efficiency, and significantly reducing procedure time.
The TyFix screw combines a highly-optimized bone thread with a barbed head to maximize bone purchase and compression in both the proximal and distal phalanges. The system delivers intraoperative flexibility by offering solid and cannulated implants with diameters ranging from Ø1.5 – 4.0mm in multiple lengths as well as a straight and an angled 10o option.
