FACETED BONE SCREW
TECHNOLOGY

Diamond Orthopedic’s proprietary bone screw technology is revolutionizing orthopedic fixation.

Lower Insertional Torque

The faceted threadform lowers insertional torque required to reduce a fracture by ~50% [A]

Increased Bone Contact

Faceted bone screws feature better neighboring bone engagement that leads to increased osteogenesis and bone/device apposition [B]

Higher Pullout Strength

Faceted bone screws feature an improved bone/screw interface, increasing fixation and pullout strength, with up to 61% greater pullout strength 2 weeks after surgery [B]

OUR STORY

Since the first screw was invented by Archimedes for irrigation purposes around 200 B.C., over 1,000 years would pass before the screw was used for its more familiar purpose: a helical threaded fastener.

Likewise, the basic 'helical' design of today's orthopedic fastener has remained relatively consistant since the 1940's.

Based on an idea that was originally concieved by a carpenter, Diamond Orthopedic's faceted threadform is the first true innovation in orthopedic fixation in decades. The unique geometry of facets reduces friction during the insertion process and uses the naturally occurring viscoelastic properties of bone to achieve more contact at the bone-screw interface. The faceted threadform enables a nearly 50% reduction in insertion torque with less stress transfer and higher pullout strength [A]

Diamond Orthopedic's faceted threadform is the new fixation standard in orthopedics.
