BioMedical Enterprises, Inc. Key Developments

BioMedical Enterprises, Inc. Launches New Elite® Nitinol Bone Fixation System - Transcending Traditional Fixation

BioMedical Enterprises, Inc. announced the launch of the new BME Elite® Nitinol Bone Fixation System. Working closely with their consulting surgeons, BME's engineering team was able to create a robust product that provides high strength, stiffness and rotational stability for high-load applications. The BME Elite system includes a patent-pending, plate-like implant design. These implants come in both two- and four-leg, low-profile configurations, available in multiple sizes. Each implant in the BME Elite system comes ready to use on a pre-loaded Zero-Torque™ insertion tool. Just like all the BME Speed™ systems, the BME Elite instruments are pre-sterilized and completely disposable. This system also features Fixation Recovery™ technology, which enables these implants to maintain compression through repetitive loading. Long-term, continuous active compression and a significantly easier and faster technique make this product a viable alternative to other traditional forms of fixation.

Biomedical Enterprises, Inc. Announces the Launch of the Speed Triad Nitinol Bone Fixation Implant

BioMedical Enterprises, Inc. (BME) announced the launch of the Speed Triad Nitinol Bone Fixation Implant, the first superelastic shape memory bone fixation system with three legs for stable, six-point fixation. The Speed Triad's unique patented design gives surgeons a fast, simple and reproducible way to achieve continuous compressive fixation of osteotomies performed to address mild to moderate bunion deformities. To treat bunions, surgeons traditionally make a V-shaped cut, called an osteotomy, across the first metatarsal head, allowing the head to slide laterally. This results in a straightening of the first metatarsal bone. Traditional fixation for this procedure is the placement of one or two screws across the osteotomy, which can be time-consuming and can result in various complications, such as dorsal bone fractures or screws backing out. In addition, repetitive loading of the osteotomy site can compromise fixation. The Speed Triad implant, BME's newest addition to the Speed product line, is made of the shape memory metal Nitinol and is designed with a bowing bridge and a converging proximal leg that provides compression along the long axis of the bone segments. Unlike screws, the Speed Triad features Fixation RecoveryTM: the ability of the implant to maintain compression through repetitive loading. The new Speed Triad is available in multiple configurations, for both medial and dorsal placement along the distal first metatarsal. The Speed Triad implant comes ready-to-use on a pre-loaded insertion tool. Just like BME's patented Speed System, the Speed Triad utilizes pre-sterilized, fully disposable instrumentation for exceptional efficiencies in the operating room.

BioMedical Enterprises Launches the Speed Titan™ Nitinol Bone Fixation Implant With Breakthrough Tapered Body Design

BioMedical Enterprises, Inc. announced the launch of the Speed Titan™ Nitinol Bone Fixation Implant. As the newest addition to the BME Speed Fixation System, the Speed Titan joins the BME Speed, Speed Arc™ and Speed Shift™ implants. The Speed Titan implant, with a breakthrough tapered body design, has a wider, low-profile bridge, for higher strength and compression. This new Speed Titan implant provides more compression than the leading Nitinol implant competitor. The Speed Titan’s wider bridge tapers into narrower legs, making the Speed Titan ideal for high-load, mid-foot applications where there may be limited space for fixation. The Speed Titan implant comes ready-to-use on a pre- loaded insertion tool.  Just like BME’s patented Speed system, the Speed Titan utilizes pre-sterilized, fully disposable instrumentation for exceptional efficiencies in the operating room.
