FOR SALE: New growth plate fixation product
Streamers… I am passing along a new product that is available for sale or licensing. See message below.
I am Mauricio Toro from Industrias Médicas Sampedro a small trauma manufacturer in Colombia that has been working very hard on establishing an R&D system that focuses on enhanced surgical planning by use of 3D printing and novel technologies that make surgeries easier. I am an avid reader of your blog and want to share with you a product that we have developed and has a PCT patent pending. Our product is called Epiflex, it is an infinitely flexible growth control plate that is based on cables and two loops for the screws. This flexibility allows for larger corrections, for more a more anatomical plate position and for an extremely low contact implant in the physis. We developed this product for our own portfolio, but we only sell our products in Colombia and believe this product has a larger potential audience. With your contact list I thought you might be interested in discussing potential ways to approach orthopedic companies that might be interested in licensing or buying the technology.
We will have a booth in AAOS Booth 3051 and if you have time, it would be very interesting to have a chat and let me show you the prototypes and other interesting tech we have developed.
Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.
