The GENOS MC is an internal finger distractor developed in co-operation with Dr. S. Ruf.
It is used in the reconstruction of the thumb or the meta-carpal bones after amputation and also in the correction of malformations. It allows lengthening of the metacarpal bone up to a maximum of 30mm and there is another smaller distractor available allowing lengthening of up to 23mm maximum, see GENOS Mini.
Unlike traditional external distractors, used for callus distraction, the GENOS MC prevents intra-distraction angle deviation and bone flexion caused by scar formation after the fixator is removed.
The finger lengthening achieved by distraction enables the patient to use their hand in a normal way again.
No danger of infection caused by external nails
