Our award-winning design ensures intuitive and error-proof deployment of MedShape Solutions’ Morphix shape-memory polymer bone anchor. The anchor provides superior retention in both healthy and osteoporotic bone. The device locks the sutures in side grooves which mimic the shape of the anchor, providing a critical visual indicator of the anchor orientation prior to deployment. The ergonomic design simplifies
usage steps to a simple “tap in” delivery, reduces surgeon error, and enables accurate control. Additionally, we reduced part count and tooling dollars by making the front and rear housings the same part. The system is a 2010 Medical Design Excellence Gold Award Winner. Its success paved the path for a platform of shape-memory devices by MedShape Solutions.
