Cambridge Orthopaedic Labs has undertaken in depth research work into finding appropriate polymers with optimal stiffness to form articulated cuffs made of multiple intricate parts. This has led to development of articulated cuffs that are radiolucent under X-rays or fluoroscopy. The tensile and compressive strength is suitable for stabilising the fracture yet not too rigid. This allows biological healing via the route of relative stability.
Our team and partners have developed an innovative polylattice lining membrane. This biocompatible material has spacer fabric properties. The polylattice lining membrane is designed to protect the pressure areas next to the skin while the optimal thickness helps maintain the circulation. The material is hydrophobic and breathable. It has been impregnated with additional coating to optimise coefficient of friction.
The PolyArmour System utilises suitable metal alloys to achieve connecter devices that offer 3-degree freedom of movement. The metal connectors are able to house optimal strength carbon fibre rods.
