CurvaFix is a medical device start-up focused on developing a novel solution for an unmet need in orthopedic trauma. The CurvaFix® IM Implant is the only intramedullary device capable of following the natural bone shape and filling the space within curved bones such as the pelvis.
Pelvic fractures are among the most serious and technically complex injuries treated by orthopedic trauma surgeons. The ring-shaped pelvis supports body weight and often breaks in two places. Often the result from car accidents or falls, pelvic fractures require rapid and precise fixation for repair. Existing fixation methods require lengthy, difficult surgical procedures and can result in ineffective bone fixation, which causes pain, slows recovery and can contribute to long-term disability.
To address these challenges, CurvaFix developed the CurvaFix IM implant to provide a new direction for pelvic fracture repair.
