MatrixRIB® Fixation System

Features & Benefits


  • Precontoured Plates

    Plates are precontoured to fit an average rib shape, which minimizes intraoperative bending.


  • Locking system

    Locking plate and screw design for increased stable fixation.


  • MIPO

    The versatile minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) instruments extend reach without increasing incision size and enable rib stabilization of sub-scapular fractures with MatrixRIB implants.


  • Sternal Plates

    MatrixRIB 2.8mm sternal plates can be used for sternal fracture fixation and chest wall deformity repair.


  • Intramedullary Splints 

    Intramedullary splints allow minimally invasive procedures.
