RICHARDSON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, February 6, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gramercy Extremity Orthopedics (GEO®) receives US Patent No. 10,206,725 which covers a novel approach for Variable Angle Locking Technology, adding to the intellectual property GEO has established in this area. This patent covers a unique design that allows a screw to be fixed at various angles and orientations using self-aligning washers within the plate hole. The washer holes line up with the screw to facilitate insertion and provide a large interface area with the screw threads, increasing the strength of the construct.
“The granting of our second US variable angle locking patent continues to enhance GEO’s ability to bring Orthopedic Implant solutions to surgeon and patient needs” says Michael P. Simpson, CEO and President of GEO. “This technology has the potential to improve the current variable angle locking technology in Orthopedics.”
