Gramercy Extremity Orthopedics Receives US Patent for Variable Angle Locking Technology -

Gramercy Extremity Orthopedics (GEO) was awarded U.S. Patent No. 10,058,362 covering a novel approach for Variable Angle Locking Technology. The patent provides various methods to leverage the strength of machined threads in plates and screws by using inserts that allow the screw to be fixed in various angles and orientations. Like a standard plate hole, the insert contains machined threads, allowing a standard locking screw to be inserted at the desired orientation. The screw can also be removed, the insert re-oriented and the screw replaced as desired. (GEO, 9/26/18)
