Motec® Wrist Joint Arthrodesis System

The Motec® Wrist Joint Arthrodesis System has been developed to enable easy conversion of the Motec® Wrist Joint Prosthesis to a total wrist arthrodesis.

The System provides salvage options that limit unnecessary implant removal by taking advantage of pre-existing stable and osseointegrated implants from the Motec Wrist Joint Prosthesis. This preserves the bone available for arthrodesis by minimising bone loss which would otherwise occur during removal of well-fixed implants. The intramedullary system has been developed to reduce soft tissue irritation from hardware and the associated need for secondary implant removal.

The Motec Wrist Joint Arthrodesis System has three different options depending on the patient and implant situation. Note the implants are only for initial fixation. The bone fusion provides long term stability of the wrist.
