In collaboration with Small Bone Innovations (SBi), Artimplant has developed a new product in the Artelon® Spacer range with a similar user-friendly textile design to Artelon® Tissue Reinforcement (ATR). The product, Artelon® CMC Soft, has been granted CE-approval by the certification body Lloyd’s and has thus been granted clearance for marketing in Europe.

The major difference between the old Artelon® CMC Spacer and the new Artelon® CMC Soft is that the size can be adjusted and can thus be adapted to the requirements of each individual patient. Artimplant estimates that Artelon® CMC Soft will gradually replace existing Spacer products for thumb base osteoarthritis in the CMC-joint.
