FDA Clearance for Osteotec Silicone Finger Implant

UK orthopaedic company Osteotec has received U.S. FDA clearance to market its silicone finger implant range in the USA.

Background

The silicone finger is Osteotec’s own design and comes in a range of eleven, evenly scaled sizes to ensure a precise fit in different patient anatomies.

The implant is manufactured from high tear resistant implant grade silicone and features a dorsal load transferring hinge design.

Based in Christchurch, Dorset, UK, Osteotec distributes implants in the UK from such luminary companies as Integra (Pyrocarbon PIP & MCP finger implants and total wrist replacement system) in addition to which it employs its own R&D department, the source of its own silicone finger implant range. The company says it will now embark on the establishment of a US distribution network for its newly cleared implant.
