A well proven system used in over 500 surgeries
The OPRA™ fixture is coated with a new surface technology, BioHelix™, that has been developed by Integrum after 15 years of research and clinical testing. The surface will take osseointegration to the next level and promote faster, stronger attachment to the bone, thereby increasing the strength of the bone-to-implant interface. The prosthesis is connected to the OPRA™ Implant System using a connection, load controlling device. Integrum has developed specific components each customized for different indication levels, including both upper and lower limb.
The OPRA™ Implant System components are implanted during one or two stage surgeries.The first surgery with the OPRA™ Implant System was performed in 1990 by Professor Per-Ingvar Brånemark and Professor Björn Rydevik and over the coming almost 30 years, more than 500 surgeries have been performed in fourteen countries. Clinical studies show that the surgery significantly improves the quality of life for amputees.
