The IM reamer is made from a flexible Nitinol tube. This allows for anatomically appropriate reaming along the natural curvature of the long bone not possible with a straight rigid reamer. The smooth nature of the Nitinol tube allows for easy cleaning, minimizing the risk of infection in patients.
●Smooth design on both interior and exterior eliminates dirt traps and allows easy cleaning.
●Super-elastic material permits a high degree of deformation before permanent distortion.
●Increased flexibility permits insertion to the bone through an acute angle matching the curve of the long bone.
●Our patented reverse cutting reamer heads reduce risk of jamming and help to clear bone debris when backing out the reamer.
●Smaller diameter of the tube reduces the pressure to the IM canal and the possibility of Deep Vein Thrombosis.
●The geometry of the dovetail attachment creates a secure connection.
