We considered traditional fastener thread forms for our artificial elbow joint, but lacked confidence that they would stay in place for the up to a million load cycles an active patient could subject them to in their lifetime. Instead, we selected an innovative self-locking fastener called Spiralock.Tom Norman, Vice President of Engineering
From critical devices like surgical lasers, MRI scanners, or implantable pacemakers to instruments as straightforward as stethoscopes, when human lives are at risk, medical equipment must be dependable. Fasteners are among critical components responsible for accurate and reliable equipment performance. STANLEY® Engineered Fastening improves the manufacturers’ design confidence with its selection of unique fastening products ideally suited for providing supreme integrity in threaded joints.
Medical engineering poses unique challenges for implant and artificial joint manufacturers because they are required to withstand millions of fluctuating load cycles without a chance for re-tightening. STANLEY® Engineered Fastening offers innovative and reliable self-locking fasteners that enable patients to maintain active lifestyles with confidence that their implantable components will function effectively.
In a field where second chances are frequently not an option, surgical tools and instruments require dependable performance, especially when a patient’s life is at risk during a surgical procedure.. Since fasteners are extremely important in assuring solid performance of numerous surgical devices, manufacturers turn to STANLEY® Engineered Fastening for proven solutions to very complex fastening challenges.
