The Biomet Multi-Axial Correction (MAC) Fixation System was designed
to fill the need for a unilateral system to accomplish what circular
fixation can accomplish. The Biomet MAC System can gradually angulate
and translate in the sagittal and coronal planes simultaneously. It is
one of the simplest devices for achieving gradual and acute
- System is highly modular and can be integrated with existing
systems, such as Biomet Vision Pin-to-Bar System, Biomet Carbon Rail
System, DFS Hybrid Rings, etc.
- Adult and XS sizes to
suit very small patients and larger patients in a non-weight bearing
capacity. Adult size for many patients with malunions, and younger
patients with deformities who are larger in size.
- System is also capable of unilateral, hybrid and ring-to-ring
- Ring Distraction mechanism allows
user to gradually distract between two rings. Only Biomet offers
ring distraction from a single point. The patient only has to make
one correction, not three or four, as with circular fixation
- Available in five sizes of rotating rings-four adult and one XS. When using the Biomet rotating rings with the Biomet MAC System, it is possible to attain up to 150° of gradual rotation, with a 1/4 turn to 1° rate of correction.
