Arcad memory staples offer an alternative or complementary fixation to screw or plate fixation, and its unique design offers constant at the osteotomy site.
In addition, the range of static stainless steel staples provides stabilization during varisation osteotomies.

Arcad® Staples are designed to facilitate fast and easy insertion in a variety of applications and once implanted, return to their shape memory compressed position. Dynamic and permanent compression is achieved at the arthrodesis or osteotomy site.

ONE-PIECE COMPRESSIVE CONSTRUCT
The Arcad® Staples was designed to help achieve optimum compression for fusion.
Delivered at ambient temperatures, the Nitinol (NiTi) ASTM F2063 memory metal structure induces balanced inward (“pushing”) forces. By pre-loading the staple with the Arcad® Forceps, the legs are then inserted into the guided pilot holes. Once the forceps are released, the memory of the metallic alloy exerts a compressive force on the legs as represented in the image above.
Immediate and continuous compression; the implant goes to work upon impaction and maintains compression throughout the course of treatment.
