We offer patient specific custom implants for everything that is not covered by our large portfolio of regular products. Custom devices include reconstruction implants for tumor resections, complex revision cases or treatment of pathologies for which no standard prostheses are available in the market.
In close collaboration with the surgeon, customLINK® experts develop and design patient individual solutions which are manufactured in-house and commonly delivered sterile packaged. From offical surgeon approval until delivery usually takes not more than 4 weeks.
For production of customLINK® devices latest processes and technolgies are applied, such as additive manufacturing for complex geometries or TrabecuLINK® surface structures.
Surfaces of the implants can be modified using different coating procedures: Silver coating PorAG®, hypoallergenic1 coating PorEx®, bioconductive2 coating HX®.
