Bioretec ActivaScrew patented Auto-Compression™ technology reduces the risk of unstable fixation. This technology tightens the fracture line and it provides additional support to proper ossification. ActivaScrew™ degrades slowly in the span of approximately two years slowly transferring the stress back to the bone and in doing so accelerating rehabilitation. ActivaScrew™ is fully absorbed in the human body conditions, so there is no need for implant removal operation. This also accelerates the healing process.
ActivaScrew’s™ benefit lies in the patented Auto-Compression™ technology, which maintains compression during the bone healing. The diameter of the screw will increase, and the length will decrease 1-2% in the human body conditions, locking itself in place and maintaining needed compression for appropriate bone healing.
