PediatrOS™ RigidTack™


Growth steering for leg length differences

To ensure that the staples will behave rigidly and mechanically, their central areas are reinforced especially well, allowing stable, precise temporary epiphysiodesis. The trapezoidal design of the PediatrOS™ RigidTack™ staple is closely aligned to the anatomy of the femur and tibia. Cannulated legs allow accurate placement using K wires. Low fluoroscopy times are another advantage. The PediatrOS™ RigidTack™ is the only growth-steering implant on the market specifically developed and approved for correcting leg length differences in children and adolescents.
