In the light of today’s technology and bio mechanical studies, a new generation of external fixator which has superior technical features, has been made of lightweight titanium material, has the ability to offer high resistance and stabilization, allowing to obtain the desired reposition on different planes simultaneously has been developed.
The so called ‘‘Modular Adjustable Multifunctional External Fixator MAMEF’’, allows for rotational correction, segmental transportation and angular correction of the deformity in addition to the axial plane corrections of the pathological lower extremity.
This unique, new generation external fixator system can be used for the fixation of the lower extremity fracture, limb deformity correction in frontal, sagittal and oblique planes, shortening and lengthening osteotomies, malunion or nonunion (pseudoarthrosis) conditions, elimination of joint contractures and correction of congenital limb deformities.
The fixator has a special and effective connection system in order to maintain the reduction of fracture obtained with MAMEF.
The fixator allows 360 degree rotational motion, flexion-extension and varus-valgus mobility are obtained safely.
30+30=60 degree of clamp angulation can be carried out (in all directions depending on the long axis of the fixator).
Transactions can be done individually or in combination with this external fixator system and the other parts of the fixator which are pre-fixed sections will not be affected by courtesy of this feature of the fixator during the secondary applications.
MAMEF allows Schanz pin placement for all planes and any desired configurations.
This external fixator is suitable for use in hybrid with the type of ring and bar fixator systems which provide to use as circular and small fixation wires in case of the purpose of fixation of the intra-articular and extra-articular fractures in metaphyseal application of femur and tibia and in case
