The Smart Toe II intramedullary implant was designed for correction of a hammertoe deformity. It offers rotational stability and compression across the joint line, while avoiding potential complications experienced with k-wires, such as pin tract infection and post-operative exposure.  Smart Toe II has been clinically documented with fusion rates of over 90% and 2x the fusion rate of k-wires.
