GEMINUS® VOLAR PLATING SYSTEM

Optimized subchondral support while minimizing the potential for soft tissue injury

Dual head design protects flexor tendons by providing the lowest profile at the watershed line1

Screw trajectories designed to provide optimal subchondral support

AIMing Guides are pre-inserted distal drill guides to confirm reduction and screw trajectories prior to screw insertion

Hook plate option allows extending fixation to secure volar marginal fragments

FREEFIX® technology allows the fracture to dictate screw placement

Both compression and locking screws can be inserted in any position in FreeFix® slots

Patented horizontal thread pattern allows dynamic compression with locking screws

1.5mm of dynamic compression per slot
