The Acumed Calc-Jak is designed specifically to restore patient
anatomy by assisting surgeons in pulling displaced fractures of
the calcaneus out to length prior to fixation. Facilitating patient
positioning without the need for extra personnel, the instrument
also allows for accurate fracture reduction.
The Calc-Jak is designed to allow for medial/lateral,
anterior/posterior, and superior/inferior translation of a calcaneus
fracture. These three translations can then be locked in place
individually utilizing the Cam-levers. Additional fine tuning
adjustments along the anterior/posterior and superior/inferior
planes can then be applied prior to implant fixation.
The system can be used in conjunction with the minimally
invasive, sinus tarsi approach for treating calcaneus fractures with
