HyProCure® was created to provide the best solution to recurrent/flexible displacement (RTTD) of the talotarsal mechanism. RTTD has been named as the primary etiology for many pathologic foot and ankle conditions and may also contribute to damage in other parts of the body. Due to the unique design of HyProCure®, utilizing both the canalis and sinus portion of the sinus tarsi, it restores normal triplane motion of the talotarsal joint while eliminating the excessive motion of the talus on the calcaneus and helping to prevent weightbearing navicular drop.
The osteo-WEDGETM Open Wedge Bone Locking System, a new product for Hallux Valgus surgeries, provides patients and foot surgeons a new option for permanent bunion correction, without the limitations of other methods.
Working with physicians and local distributors on nearly every continent, GraMedica®, global orthopedic medical device company and maker of HyProCure® and osteo-WEDGETM, strives to educate foot and ankle professionals. Reaching more doctors in more countries enables real treatment options to become available to countless patients seeking a solution to their painful symptoms.
