SANTA ROSA, Calif., Feb. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Sonoma Orthopedic Products announced that it has completed the acquisition of certain key assets of NovaLign Orthopaedics, Inc.
The acquired intellectual property, assets, and licenses relate to novel intramedullary designs for least invasive fracture fixation. Complementary to Sonoma’s proprietary WaviBody™ Technology, it is another type of flexible-to-rigid science that allows implants to be inserted into bones in a flexible condition and then locked securely to hold fractures in place during healing. The acquired technology will be marketed under the TaperBody™ brand. TaperBody implants can be inserted without violating surrounding joints and are especially useful for long bone fractures. Sonoma Orthopedic Products expects to begin rolling out TaperBody products in Q2 of this year.
