Incremental, multiplanar reduction for distal radius fractures.
The WristJack Fracture Reduction System was created around the mechanics of the distal radius fracture in order to help physicians obtain the best possible result for their patients. The WristJack uses gear driven adjustments to take advantage of functionally intact soft tissue hinges to achieve ligamentotaxis in multiple planes, or MULTIPLANAR™ Ligamentotaxis.
Palmar translation of the hand on the forearm tightens an intact dorsal periosteum and restores palmar tilt. Radial length, rotational alignment and radial inclination are all independently adjustable using color-coded gears. Wrist positioning is independent from fracture reduction.
Fracture Reduction using the WristJack can be monitored with fluoroscopy.
Step by step fracture reduction using incrementally adjustable, color-coded gears.
In order to help ensure the best outcome possible when using the WristJack, it is important for physicians to discuss with their patients why this course of treatment was chosen, the surgical procedure, the length of treatment and any potential complications.
