We provide customized solutions for every requirement that is not covered by the wide range of standard products. This includes tumor resections, complicated revision arthroplasties, and treatment of pathologies for which there is no suitable prosthesis on the market.
Our customLINK specialists work closely with the user to develop, design, and manufacture customized solutions, which are then sterile-packaged for shipment, if required. This generally takes four weeks from the moment that approval from the surgeon and hospital is given.
customLINK utilizes state-of-the-art technologies in the production of the customized implants. These include additive manufacturing for complex geometries or for the TrabecuLINK structure. The surfaces of the implants can be modified with various coatings: PorAg silver coating*, LINK PorEx coating1*, and HX coating2*.
*LINK PorEx and HX coatings have been cleared via 510(k) for use on commercially available implants. PorAg coating may be requested under Compassionate Use provisions.
