PRESS RELEASE: 2020 Lever Action Plate

McGinley Orthopedics Launches New Plate for Distal Radius Fractures: Lever Action Plate System


McGinley Orthopedics Launches New Plate for Distal Radius Fractures: Lever Action Plate System™ 

McGinley Orthopedics, a developer of innovative HandHeld Robotic technology with a goal of changing  the standard of medical care, has a new product. The Lever Action Plate System™ is a dynamic, fragment  reduction technology that assists surgeons in restoring volar tilt and articular congruity. A novel solution  for a wide range of distal radius fractures, The Lever Action Plate System™ provides precise, beam-assisted  reduction of intra-articular fractures, creating a structurally sound fixation.  Details for surgeons and industry leaders:  The innovative Lever Action Plate System™ features proprietary beams that align volar tilt. The beams  are inserted into the nonreduced fracture and with the turn of a screw, the beams and the fracture are  elevated into the surgeon's desired placement. Optimizing alignment, the beams provide independent  fixation of the central and radial column. The design’s contoured, subchondral fixation reduces  subsidence. An improvement on the current, generic plates available on the market, the system has  optional variable angle screws of varying sizes with patented locking technology. The contour of the plate  is designed to adhere comfortably to the watershed line on the radius. It is designed to assist the surgeon  with restoring volar tilt and in turn, potentially improve patient outcomes. Used in combination with the  IntelliSense Drill Technology®, a drill that auto-stops at the far side of the bone and indicates depth  measurement for accurate screw sizing, the Lever Action Plate System™ will improve surgical procedures  and outcomes. Why this innovative technology is critical for patients:  The Lever Action Plate System™ addresses a real and prevalent need in orthopedics. Distal radius fractures  account for about 20% of all fractures. 1 in 5 ER treated fractures are of the distal radius. A complication  rate of 15% has been reported with traditional volar plating and post-op complication rates can be as high  as 80%. The Lever Action Plate System™ is an improvement on the standard of care. It is patented and  currently pending FDA clearance.  Surgeons and industry leaders can see the debut of the Lever Action Plate System™ at the annual  American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) meeting this March. Booth #3963.
