Forearm Rod System

The Acumed Forearm Rod System offers surgeons an alternative option for the treatment of fractures and osteotomies of the radius and ulna over traditional plating. Each fluted rod is designed to be inserted through a small incision with minimal canal reaming. A targeted interlocking screw, combined with a paddle blade tip design, locks and rotationally secures the bone segments to assist in fracture union.

Ulna Rod

The Acumed Ulna Rod is designed to address simple, transverse, and short oblique fractures as well as osteotomies of the ulna. Each fluted rod is designed to be inserted through a small incision with minimal canal reaming. A targeted interlocking screw, combined with a paddle blade tip design, locks and rotationally secures the bone segments to assist in fracture union.

Radius Rod

The Acumed Radius Rod is used to treat fractures and osteotomies of the radius. Contoured to ease insertion and closely match the geometry of the radial canal, the rod’s targeted interlocking screws and paddle-blade tip are designed to lock and rotationally secure bone segments to stabilize the fracture. This minimally invasive technique may reduce scarring and surgery time over traditional open reduction internal fixation (ORIF).
