Titamed. Smart in Fixation.
Titamed manufactures a complete range of fixation systems in titanium for the oral and maxillofacial surgeon. The system includes titanium plates and screws for maxillo facial fixation, including the instruments. In 2005 we launched the Smile Distractor, a Surgically assisted rapid palatal distractor for maxillary distraction.
The company was founded in 1984, initially funds were raised to acquire the necessary machines and manpower to develop a screw and plate system, specifically designed for the oral and maxillo-facial surgeon with focus on orthognatic surgery.
In 2004 Titamed started research for a palatal distraction device to widen the maxilla after the appropriate corticotomies. The focus in design was to make the device patient friendly in terms of comfort and hygienic maintenance as it remains implanted during a period of 3 to 5 months. A key challenge in the design was to generate distraction forces not just superficially but deep in the bone as well. The SMILE Distractor was launched in July 2005.
As a result of continuous evolution Titamed launch the SMART Fixation in 2015.
A combination of 3 different systems, each one designed for a specific series of indications:
