Application: Bone fixation implants (Patent ID: US20240058043A1)

The patent filed by Stryker Corp. discloses improved shape memory material orthopedic fixation implants for joint fusion procedures. The implants include a bridge with legs and a metal spacer structure for insertion between bone surfaces, promoting bone ingrowth. The shape memory material allows the bridge to move between an insertion shape and an implanted shape, providing compression in multiple preset directions.

The orthopedic implants also feature additional legs, porous perforated metal spacer structures, and threaded holes for bone screws. The shape memory material used in the implants allows for controlled movement and compression in various directions, enhancing the fusion process. The design variations, such as triangular wedge or trapezoidal shaped profiles, cater to different anatomical needs, making the implants versatile for orthopedic applications.
