Zimmer Biomet launches Stratum Foot Plating System

Zimmer Biomet recently launched the StratumTM Foot Plating System, a plate and screws construct indicated for the fixation of fractures, osteotomies, non-unions, malunions and fusions of small bones and small bone segments, particularly in osteopenic bone.

The Stratum Foot Plating System was showcased at the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society (AOFAS) Annual Meeting in Chicago.

Expanding on the features of the Zimmer Biomet ALPS® Total Foot System, the Stratum Foot Plating System is the next generation of anatomic locking plates designed to optimise ease of use and reduce operation time.

The system contains 11 distinctive plate options (49 plates) along with six screw families (2.7, 3.5 and 4.0mm), and features tine technology for hand-free application, pre-assembled compression ramps on the plates, and a variety of sterile locking,
non-locking and multi-directional locking screws, allowing for
multiple screw combinations.

“The versatility and functionality of the Stratum Foot Plating System help optimise efficiencies in foot and ankle procedures,” said Mervin Smith, Zimmer Biomet’s general manager and vice president of lower extremities.

“Building on Zimmer Biomet’s portfolio of foot and ankle technologies, the next generation plating system offers a customisable, streamlined solution for surgeons.”
