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 (Anthro-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.
The Standard System is custom fit for each individual pin size (device and wound dressing) 4,5,6 mm. The precise and secure fitting compression nut allows for variable control when securing the device.
The VPS-2 (Red) was designed to accommodate two pin sizes (3.2/4.0 mm). The fastening clamp is used to easily secure or release the device from the surgical pin.
VPS-4 (Variable Pin System)
The VPS-4 System is a unique innovative design, with an oval pin stem, allowing for no minimum pin to pin distances, and a maximum pin to pin distance of 15 mm. The oval design allows for liberation incision coverage. The fastening clamp is used to easily secure or release the device from the surgical pin.
The VPS-2 (Blue) was designed to accommodate two pin sizes (2.0/2.5 mm). The fastening clamp is used to easily secure or release the device from the surgical pin.
