Faster mobilisation with one operation
Traditional fixation is widely used in metacarpal bone fractures. However in case of metal coming outside the skin, problems such as pin infection, damage to adjacent soft tissue, need for removal and unattractive dorsal scarring. On top of that, it is difficult to start early active motion exercise.
Fixing the fracture with ActivaPin™ it is possible to prevent the soft tissue damage, dorsal scarring and removal is avoideda and early active exercises are possible.
Metacarpal fracture fixation with ActivaPin™
Fast operation with ActivaPin™ allows the patient to start the recovery right away. Patented grooved design and superior pull-out force ensure that the fracture remains fixed. On top of that, the patented diameter increase in human body conditions of 1-2%, Self-Locking SL™, adds even more fixation power. Reusable or single-use applicator is straightforward to use and both provide a good guidance to the ActivaPin™.

Why this technique?
Patient can return to normal life and rehabilitate faster. One obvious advantage with ActivaPin™ in hand surgery is the avoidance of soft tissue adhesion of metal implants.
Fast and easy, 5-8 minute operation from start to finnish with ActivaPin™.
ActivaPin™ allows the bone to regain its strength after healing properly.
