After more than 100,000 successful HBS procedures worldwide,
the time had come to evaluate the experiences gained and to utilize
them for a new generation of headless bone screws.
A great challenge in designing the HBS 2 implants consisted of
retaining the proven implant geometry while enhancing the options
for individual fracture treatment.
Another objective was to simplify the handling of the HBS 2 system
for all parties involved – the surgeon, the assisting OR personnel
and the CSSD (Central Sterilization Service Department) staff –
utilizing all the technologies that are now available. By reducing
the surgical steps and enhancing the ergonomics of the HBS 2
system, immediate benefits are created for patients as well as
providing for substantial economic advantages.
