MAXFRAME™ Multi-Axial Correction System

The MAXFRAME™ Multi-Axial Correction System is a computer-assisted circular ring fixation system. The modular nature of MAXFRAME System enables surgeons to customize each frame to meet individual patient needs. Circular ring fixation frames are most commonly applied to the tibia, but also can be applied to the femur, the humerus, the foot, and the forearm.

The MAXFRAME System offers a versatile and viable alternative for fracture management and deformity correction by utilizing the principles of Distraction Osteogenesis. The system can also be utilized to treat soft tissue contractures, such as Equinus foot.

The main components of the system are, rings, (full rings, 5/8 rings, briding plates, and foot plates), and struts (Quick Adjust and Standard). Other available components include transfixion wires (smooth and reduction or “olive”), Schanz pins, and connection elements such as open wire posts and connection plates, These components can be used to create many frame configurations to address a wide variety of Indications.

The MAXFRAME System hardware is coupled with the MAXFRAME 3D Software for use in the creation of patient treatment plans, which detail required strut adjustments.
