SpeedTip® Cannulated Compression Screws
- Sharp screws to cover numerous areas of use across upper and lower limb due to
- patented SpeedTip polygonal geometry
- precise and sharp thread
- optimized cutting geometry
- Self-holding porperties beween screw and screwdriver due to patented HexaDrive
Turquoise: CCS 1.7
Purple: CCS 2.2
Yellow: CCS 3.0
Brown: CCS 4.0
Dark blue: CCS 5.0
Turquoise: CCS 7.0
- Functionally unique cutting of the bone with immediate bite 1 and reduced insertion torque thanks to SpeedTip screw design
- Direct implantation without predrilling 2:
The triangular tip design permits simultaneous drilling, tapping and compression of the bone tissue during insertion for increased pull-out stability 3, 4
- Simplified screw pick-up and increased torque transmission due to patented self holding
