WARSAW — WishBone Medical, Inc., has been granted a global, non-exclusive license for the sale of a patented guided growth plating system in children with deformed limbs.
These three patents were created and designed for the gradual correction of pediatric deformities in both the upper and lower extremities.
WishBone Medical is designing and developing its own guided growth plate and instrumentation systems in sterile packed, single-use, disposable kits. This product will come in both the two-hole and four-hole plates systems in multiple sizes as well as options in stainless steel and titanium. The anticipated launch will be in the first quarter of 2019, following FDA clearance.
“We are excited to enter into this license agreement of patented technologies to develop, produce and sell our guided growth systems,” said Nick Deeter, chairman of the WishBone Medical Board. “These systems will provide global access in sterile-packed, single-use disposable kits for children who are suffering with these pediatric deformities around the world. With this sterile-packed system, we can go into hospitals and surgery centers that have not had access to the traditional reusable systems.”
“As a dedicated pediatric orthopedic company, WishBone Medical needed this product to round out its large portfolio of orthopedic implants designed specifically for children with orthopedic issues.” said Dr. Robert von Seggern, executive vice-president at WishBone Medical.
