Potentially reduce pain and accelerate patient mobility

An implant technology can become an extension of the surgeon’s efforts as it continues to facilitate and accelerate the patient’s healing journey.

Bone Health Viability

By design, every other implant in the world today is forced to sacrifice the architecture of the bone in order to establish an interference-fit strong enough to hold the implant to the bone until bone healing, osseointegration, or fusion occurs.

 

A traditional interference fit leaves the compressed bone limited in its ability to bear loads after the skin is closed.

The Path to Recovery

NOTE: The Conventional implant to bone interface requires compression of the bone, rendering the bone less capable of sharing loads with the implant.

Mechanical Integration

The method of Mechanical Integration (MI) centers on OsteoCentric’s proprietary, next-generation thread geometry branded as UnifiMI. This interface technology is capable of achieving and sustaining primary implant stability in normal and compromised bone.

  • Unique thread geometry instantly and circumferentially interlocks with bone by entrapping and containing bone between the thread form.
     

  • This mechanical interlocking creates a structural and functional connection between an implant and bone which performs similar to Biological Integration (Osseointegration).
     

  • Unlike Biological Integration (Osseointegration), the UnifiMI connection to bone is instant vs delayed, removable vs. permanent, mechanical vs. biological. 

Bone Preservation

Conventional Thread Interface

The current standard is “Buttress Thread”, a compressive device that damages the bone upon insertion, leading to poor fixation, and a ‘race to healing’ before implant loosening and failure.

  • Crushes & plows during insertion

  • Creates a damaged & unstable interface

How Does UnifiMI Prepare & Preserve Bone?

Bone’s innate structure and interconnectivity play major roles in improving implant fixation and prolonging stability. UnifiMI implants and instruments are designed specifically with this fact in mind, creating a symbiotic relationship at the bone-implant interface.

 

OsteoCentric drill bits are designed to preserve bone volume by drilling true cylindrical pilot holes - these drill bits can be beneficial when used with UnifiMI or any other implant technology. 

UnifiMI implants incorporate by design, and utilize proprietary self-tapping technology to advance bone chips forward in order to create a clean bone-implant interface maintaining the health of the patient’s bone.

Upon implantation, UnifiMI’s patented thread geometries are designed to preserve the architecture of bone by minimizing outward forces applied to the mechanically integrated (MI) bone.
