Velvet revolution in knee surgery

Operating upon the cruciate ligament in the knee is about to become a lot simpler with the Resofix® Plus applicator developed by the German company Resoimplant.

This disposable applicator will allow a cruciate ligament implant to be gently inserted, in full safety, into the head of the tibia, on a bioresorbable pin.

The handle (blue) and the different versions of the tip (yellow, white and green) are made of Ultraform® Pro, a technical plastic from BASF (POM).

Apart from its technical properties, one factor proved decisive in choosing this material: the comprehensive service package specially created by BASF for applications in the field of medical techniques.
