Bioretec’s ActivaPin™ is ideal for fixation of fractures and osteotomies especially in foot and ankle.



When operating flake fractures, for example, in chondral areas of the knee, ActivaNail™ offers needed additional support with its small head. Self-Locking SL™ technology and grooved surface design enable pins and nails to stay in place with improved rotational stability. Just choose a suitable pin or nail and tap it quickly into place with Bioretec pin applicator.

Benefits of using ActivaPin™ or ActivaNail™ in fixation of radial head and neck fractures:

  • Great benefit of direct transarticular fixation of radial neck or head.

  • No protruding implants at the joint surfaces.

  • Far less invasive than plate fixation.

  • All inside technique.

  • No K-wires through the skin.

  • Can be inserted fully arthroscopically.

  • ActivaPin™ and ActivaNail™ 2.0 x 20-40 mm are well suitable for this indication.



Bioretec`s product concept

Bioretec has developed a product concept that allows for the aseptic use of a bioabsorbable product in the operating theatre. The concept facilitates and speeds up the surgeon’s work, while also optimizing safety. The ActivaPin™ is delivered in a specifically designed holder that permits the aseptic use of the product. It also offers a safe and user-friendly way to attach the pin to an instrument and transport it to the operating target.

Both ActivaPin™ and ActivaNail™ are FDA cleared and CE approved.
