Features & Benefits

Anatomical contoured plate design:

  • Asymmetrical design with left and right specific options
  • Straight edge lines up with bicipital groove for easier plate positioning
  • Sits 1.5cm below Greater Tuberosity to minimize conflict with acromion
  • Spaded tip to assist in preservation of the deltoid insertion

Optimized proximal screw hole placement:

  • The divergent fixed angled locking screws are placed in the inferior half of the humeral head which is the location of the most robust bone.
  • Blunt-tipped screws limit protrusion through articular surface

Patented Dualtec System I® polyaxial locking fixation:

  • Variable angle technology for 25° (±12.5°)
  • Allows for repeated insertion and re-angulations of the screw without sacrificing its strength

Unique suture holes for soft tissue fixation:

  • Accessible even after plate attachment, so pre-loading sutures is not required.
  • 5 suture holes

Simple and streamlined instrumentation

  • 1 tray, 1 screw size, 1 drill bit, 1 driver
