Active Stabilization®

The only technology combining enhanced stability and continuous compression

What is Active Stabilization?

Active Stabilization® is the technology that combinines continuous compression with enhanced stability to optimize conditions for patient healing. The DynaForce® Implant System is the only hybrid implant system designed to address the most common rearfoot, midfoot and forefoot corrective procedures with Active Stabilization® technology.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the advantage of the DynaForce Implant System over traditional plates and screws?

Non-locking screws optimize the performance of the Active Stabilization® construct. However, the benefits of Active Stabilization® are realized if locking screws are used.

What happens to the compression of the clip once I put in screws?

The clip provides active compression across the fusion site.  Studies show that active, intermittent compression are conducive to bone growth. Final placement of the plate screws does not interfere with clip compression any more than interfering with a typical cross screw. The difference is that a nitinol clip can recover compression even in the event of resorption and/or gapping.

Should I use locking or non-locking screws on the plate?

We recommend using non-locking screws, but we have no evidence to suggest that locking screws have any adverse effect on Active Stabilization®.

Does an active stabilization® construct gap similarly to a cross screw?

No. Cross screws cannot impart compression after gapping/movement occurs at the fusion site.  The most compression you can get from a compression screw is at the time of surgery.  A nitinol clip will provide compression at time of surgery, all the way to fusion, even if resorption or gapping occurs.
