VariAx 2®

Plating platform

variax plates for product page

A new generation of implant technology.

With its patented one-step polyaxial locking technology, VariAx brings something new to surgeons: convenience. With VariAx, compression and locking occur simultaneously. The adaptable design allows for modularity and variable angles, meaning screw positioning can be based on the patient at hand, not a plate’s pre-existing design.

  • Patented SmartLock polyaxial locking technology1
  • Seven new indication specific plates
  • Locking screws can be angled ±15° for a total range of 30°
  • Anodization type II
  • Low profile plate design

These new plates are indicated for the foot, ankle, hand and wrist and provide a variety of options:

  • 24 new plates
  • Available in Slim and Broad plates that are Stright and Y-shaped
  • Sizes range from: 2 to 7 hole
