Nextremity Solutions, Inc. Announces Limited Release of the Axi+Line™ Proximal Bunion Correction System

10 Oct 2017 – By Nextremity

Nextremity Solutions, Inc., a strategic commercialization organization with a focus on the musculoskeletal space, located in “The Orthopedic Capital of the World” Warsaw, IN, is announcing the limited release of its newest product, the Axi+Line™ Proximal Bunion Correction System for the treatment of hallux valgus deformity, also known as a bunion. This announcement comes shortly after Nextremity Solutions announced the limited release of another new product, the PiroVue™ Gastrocnemius Recession System for the treatment of equinus deformities in patients.

According to a 2015 study in Foot & Ankle International® entitled, “A New Measure of Tibial Sesamoid Position in Hallux Valgus in Relation to the Coronal Rotation of the First Metatarsal in CT Scans”, patients with hallux valgus deformities (bunions) had a “more pronated first metatarsal than the control group”. The study showed that 87.3% of the patients sampled with hallux valgus deformity also had abnormal frontal plane rotation of the first ray.

Nextremity Solutions currently offers the Re+Line® Bunion Correction System, which specifically focuses on the treatment of hallux valgus deformities of lesser angles. However, the Axi+Line Proximal Bunion Correction System addresses treatment of deformities of larger angles and addresses correction in the frontal plane.
