Stratum® RS Reduced Size Foot Plating System

The Stratum RS Reduced Size Foot Plating System is the newest addition to the Stratum family of plates. This next generation of reduced size anatomic locking plates address stabilization and fixation of small bone fragments in fractures, revision procedures, joint fusion and reconstruction of small bones of the foot and ankle, particularly in osteopenic bone. The Stratum RS Reduced Size Foot Plating System includes innovative technology. The system has 18 distinctive plates (tined and tineless options) along with locking, non-locking, and multi-directional screws, ready to go in sterile procedure kits, which add value by addressing the productivity needs of the surgical team.

Hands-Free Technique

  • Tines for “hands-free” control of plate on bone – no provisional k-wires required
  • Tines prevent plate from shifting once inserted
  • Three points of fixation in small footprint

Compression Through Tines

  • External compression ramp allows for up to 3.5mm of bi-cortical compression
  • Ramp pre-assembled on plate and easily removed with hemostat
  • Compression achieved through tines, not screws, reducing shear forces

Fully Sterile System

  • An expansive, fully sterile implant/instrument system
  • Time and cost savings as sterilization before surgery is no longer necessary
  • No missing, used or damaged instruments prior to surgery
