Range of motion (ROM™) hinges feature an adjustable joint angle and allow a variable range of motion as selected by the surgeon. Each size contains a multi-toothed locking nut that allows the surgeon to lock-in any desired starting position or “normal standing angle.” The opposite end features a central flat that determines the locked position and two adjacent arcs that allow for a chosen degree of motion. The ability to progressively increase the allotted range of motion during the healing period is unique to the ROM™ hinge and can be utilized or ignored depending on patient management requirements. 

ROM™ hinges should be reserved for challenging situations that demand controlled motion or intermittent therapy. They should not be considered for most routine transarticular fixation frames.

Utilized to mount the large SK® ROM™ hinge to IMEX® circular fixation rings.
