The technical invention “snake FX” by the Erlangen-based startup nice!innovations GmbH has profoundly revolutionized the “external fixator” and its use in orthopedics and accident surgery. It is a conceptually completely new and an already well-developed product that enables an enormously clever, incomparably fast, incredibly simple and thus forgiving stabilization of bone fractures by means of an unprecedented “snake principle”. Its “one-step rapid fixation technology” allows “snakeFX” to both fix the external fixator to the bone pins and stabilize the “FixEx” in a single step! Using traditional external fixator systems, both tasks involved time-consuming and error-prone mounting operations. Patents for “snake FX” have already been awarded for Europe, US, Brazil and Japan!
