A project by scientists of the Institute of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Zielona Góra has been nominated to the top twenty inventions in the 11th competition “Eureka! DGP – we discover Polish inventions”.

Dr Piotr Kuryło and Dr Wojciech Babirecki created an innovative system for osteotomy, the anastomosis of bone fractures. Their solution enables compression, i.e. minimising the gap between the anastomosed bones and allows the anastomosis to be carried out perpendicular to the direction of the fracture, even in multifracture fractures, including oblique, transverse or spiral fractures,

The invention also allows the creation of tailor-made constructions for each case to be treated, without the need to doggle or trim the components, allows additional units to be attached at any time, even during surgery, and allows the plates to be prepared differently depending on whether they will be removed from or remain in the body after bone fusion,
