What Is Ex-Press-Fix ?
Ex-Press-Fix is a medical device system that consists of two main integral parts: the device and the customized wound dressing. This system was designed to be used with all devices that utilize surgical pins such as external fixators and halos. Surgical pins are often used in humans (Ortho-X-Fix) as well as within the veterinary community (Vet-X-Fix). Functionally it provides pin stabilization, at the skin pin interface, along with a closed compressive wound dressing environment. The peripheral ring (blue) of the wound dressing extends beyond the overall cross section diameter of the wound dressing body. This innovative design allows for the wound dressing housing to avoid skin contact as vertical compression is applied toward the surgical pin site.
