Advantages of Linares Medical DevicesMaterial 1. Light Weight Plastic hardware is much lighter than metal. 2. Radiolucent Plastics do not interfere with imaging technologies such as X-ray, CT, and MRI, whereas ceramics and metals do interfere with imaging. 3. Durable Lower rates of wear. Made of plastic-metal and plastic-ceramic alloys which have better wear characteristics when compared with current joint implant materials. 4. Antimicrobial Linares plastic components will have a lower infection risk due to incorporation of antimicrobial substances into the plastic matrix.
Ultra low profile Linares fracture plating systems are extremely low profile without sacrificing any strength and do not use screws. Muscles, tendons, and nerves will slide easily over these systems, and should be much better tolerated by patients.
Spine Linares spine stabilization systems are designed in such a way that stabilization and nerve decompression is achieved while spinal range of motion is preserved because vertebrae are not fused.
Joint/design A design that allows increased contact between the articulating surfaces to be maintained throughout the range of motion of the joint. The result is that the wear of the joint is far more uniform because the load of each movement is spread over a much larger surface area. Other integrated innovation allows the normal lubricating fluid of the joint, called synovial fluid, to more completely cover the articulating surfaces, resulting in decreased friction and better wear characteristics.
Design/joint Linares arthroplasty designs will more closely resemble the actual human joint in situ than do current arthroplasty systems. This should provide greater range of motion and make more normal activities, including athletics, possible.
Customization The Linares systems of the future will provide options for replacing only the worn segments of cartilage within the joint surface. With the ability to create matching prosthetic portions in real-time in the operating room during the surgery.
Ligament Linares artificial ligaments are made of bundled fibers with a patented “pop-off” system that allows expansion under stress, then a return to their original length, which should prevent rupture following repair.
