Optivac® is a closed system for mixing and collection of bone cement under vacuum.1-5
The Optivac System was introduced in 1993 and has been the standard against which all other systems have been measured for the last 20 years. It is still one of the most clinically proven mixing systems on the market.1-5
Improving Cement Quality
The Optivac System’s standardised mixing procedure produces homogeneous cement with very low porosity. With its mixing and collection under vacuum, it reduces both micro and macro porosity, thereby improving cement strength and fatigue life.1,2
Improved Working Environment
The Optivac System meets the high demands on mixing bone cement in the OR. It is an easy to use closed system with mixing and delivery in the same cartridge, thereby preventing direct contact between the user and the bone cement. Utilising special filters, methylmethacrylate (MMA) in the OR is reduced to barely detectable levels.6,7
The Optivac System can be used to mix cements of varying viscosity and volume. The system is adaptable to various application areas, such as hip, knee or shoulder arthroplasty. Zimmer Biomet offers a variety of nozzles for use with different types of application areas.
