, /PRNewswire/ -- BioMedical Enterprises (BME) announced today the launch of the new Speed™ Hand and Wrist System. The latest addition to BME's Speed system is optimized for hand and wrist applications, and is specially designed to be used in conjunction with BME Speed™ Nitinol implants with 9 to 15mm bridges. This system, same as the other Speed instrument kits, is pre-sterilized and completely disposable. It also contains proprietary dual-purpose, ergonomic drilling templates that allow surgeons to choose the implant bridge size and drill, all in one step, which can help save time in the operating room.
Also included in the system is the new BME Depth Gauge, which is used to measure ideal leg length PRIOR to selecting the implant. With these innovative features, BME brings the standard implant selection workflow, familiar to orthopedic surgeons, to disposable Nitinol implants systems for the first time.
