QWIX®

Limit uncertainty with…

QWIX® fixation screws are designed to provide speed and precision for challenging surgical situations for extremity fixation. The unique design of the QWIX® screw ensures :

  • Quick insertion: it is self-drilling and self-tapping.
  • Optimal and reproducible compression: variable head and lag lengths.
  • Accurate insertion with minimal soft tissue conflict : the head is totally embedded in the bone.
  • Use in multiple fixation and osteotomy sites due to its availability in  two diameters (3.0 mm and 4.3 mm).
  • Precise placement over a K-Wire in percutaneous surgery.
