OrthoPediatrics Corp. Introduces Orthex in Australia

WARSAW, Ind., Jan. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OrthoPediatrics Corp. (“OrthoPediatrics”) (NASDAQ: KIDS), a company exclusively focused on advancing the field of pediatric orthopedics, continues to expand their product offering in Australia and New Zealand. Within the past 12 months we have launched the Pediatric Nailing Platform (PNP), Response 4.5/5.0 Spine System and most recently, the Orthex system.

Orthex is an external fixation and hexapod system consisting of ring, struts, implants, hardware accessories, and novel Point & Click Software for deformity correction in both the upper and lower extremities. Orthex’s telescoping struts provide greater range, fewer strut changes, reduced inventory requirements and greater precision, while eliminating frame vibration. The patented Orthex Point & Click software is a user-friendly system which eliminates the need for the surgeon to measure any mounting parameters. Through the step-by-step Point & Click process, the user completes Center of Rotation of Angulation (“CORA”) deformity planning, and the software calculates the necessary angles and translations to align the bones and correct the deformity.

Dr. Leo Donnan, Chief of Surgery at the Royal Children’s Hospital and Clinical Associate Professor University of Melbourne, commented on his early experience with Orthex, “The hexapod frame has become an integral part of Limb Reconstructive Surgery, and the introduction of the Orthex device in an already crowded space has been an easy transition because the device is mature in its development. The company and its representatives are keen to listen, learn and react. Their hands-on training and support is excellent. There is no way to go but up from what I and my colleagues have experienced so far. We would expect this to become the premier device for reconstructive surgery as OrthoPediatrics works with surgeons to refine and develop the frame and its software.”
