SBi’s standard RingFIX™ external fixation system offers various types and sizes of rings and footplates coupled with a complete assortment of components which makes RingFIX™ a powerful tool in treating a broad patient population with various clinical needs. 

The RingFIX™ RAD is a new SBi external fixation system developed to address the growing ankle osteoarthritis market and offers an alternative to ankle arthrodesis. This system is solely dedicated to the technique of distraction Arthroplasty.

Distraction Arthroplasty is indicated for patients with ankle osteoarthritis with preserved tibiotalar joint geometry and preservation of joint mobility.

This RingFIX™ RAD was developed by Dr S. Robert Rozbruch:

“Ankle distraction is a key component of our joint preservation approach to ankle arthritis. Ankle distraction is an effective alternative to fusion that preserves the ankle joint and its range of motion."

"The RingFIX™ RAD is a kit for building an ankle distraction frame. With preassembled parts and step by step directions, the RingFIX™ RAD simplifies the process of applying a specialized circular fixator- making this tool available to all foot and ankle surgeons."
