Dyna Wire Tensioner
Tell me more about tensioning fixation wires.
Diameter is the key element in determining the stiffness or resistance to bending of a fixation pin. Hybrid (and circular frame) fixation wires are of small diameter, but placing them under tension can enhance their mechanical performance. IMEX provides a wire-tensioning device for this purpose. When the distance the wire spans is short (small diameter rings) or the patient is small (mini rings), wire tensioning is not necessary. When ring diameters or patients are large, wires must be tensioned to achieve adequate mechanical stability.
