Parcus Medical™ Launches GFS Ultimate – Experience the Convenience of Adjustable Graft Fixation
Sarasota, FL. -- Parcus Medical, a leader in customer driven sports medicine innovation, is excited to announce the launch of the Graft Fixation System (GFS) Ultimate, featuring adjustable loop technology. Developed and optimized with surgeons and administrators in mind, the GFS ultimate was designed to simplify ACL procedures and reduce the need to maintain costly product inventory such as multiple button sizes and loop lengths. With sizing options similar to the GFS Naked, the GFS Ultimate incorporates suture hold and loop technology that is modified from current product offerings to enhance construct strength and resistance to suture slippage and elongation. A key feature of the GFS Ultimate is its unique system of splices which impose a unidirectional lock when the loop is pulled to tension. Additionally, the suture loop is designed with a 4:1 mechanical advantage which allows the device to maintain the desired level of performance while using a smaller diameter suture.
“We are excited to introduce a high performance, fully adjustable fixation solution for ligament reconstruction, the GFS Ultimate.” said Bart Bracy, the Vice President of Marketing and Product Development at Parcus Medical. “Not only is this new product as stiff and strong as the leading fixed loop design, it has a step saving surgical technique and provides inventory reductions that help to reduce costs.”
The GFS Ultimate joins the family of Parcus Medical graft fixation devices, including the GFS II, Mini, and Naked product lines. Visit ParcusMedical.com to learn more about how the GFS family is tailored to meet your needs for convenience and simplicity in ACL repair.
