Key features & Benefits

The system includes several innovative features designed specifically for the clinical needs of humeral nailing

  • Straight nail with central insertion point designed to avoid potential insertion through fracture site
  • Unique screw-in-screw option for improved stability*
  • Polyethylene inlay for secure screw fixation of proximal screws
  • Ascending screw option to provide support to the calcar
  • Bicortical compression feature designed to increase stability in transverse and short oblique fractures
  • Multiplanar distal locking for less implant toggling in the short nail
  • Improved distal locking designed to be in the safe zone between the median and the radial nerve in the long nail
