The method of Mechanical Integration (MI) centers on OsteoCentric’s proprietary, next-generation thread geometry branded as UnifiMI, and provides superior primary stability of any implant in normal or compromised bone.
The MI Method is a true platform technology capable of providing improved primary stability to Spine, Trauma, Sports, Reconstruction, Extremity, Dental & Veterinary implants.
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.
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.
