The GENOS MC is an internal finger distractor developed in co-operation with Dr S. Ruf.
It is used in the reconstruction of the thumb or the meta-carpal bones after amputation and also in the correction of malformations. It allows lengthening of the metacarpal bone up to a maximum of 30mm and there is another smaller distractor available allowing lengthening of up to 23mm at a maximum, see GENOS Mini.
- Unlike traditional external distractors, used for callus distraction, the GENOS MC prevents intra-distraction angle deviation and bone flexion caused by scar formation after the fixator is removed.
- The finger lengthening achieved by distraction enables the patient to use their hand in a normal way again.
- No danger of infection caused by external nails
- No external devices causing inconvenience
- No bone graft required.
