The Acumed Calcaneal Plating System is designed to deliver a new level of performance, versatility, and reliability for calcaneal fractures. Our Calcaneal Plating System offers a minimally invasive approach that may reduce the potential for wound complications and soft tissue irritation.
Plates Specifically for a Sinus Tarsi Approach
MINI-Calc® Plates offer a variety of plate configurations in a low-profile design and can be utilized through a sinus tarsi approach for minimally invasive treatment.
Whether comminution is present in the anterior process, through the posterior facet, in the anterior tuberosity, or any combination, multiple plates and sizes are available to treat each of these fracture patterns.
The MINI-Calc Plates are 1.25 mm thick and are designed to minimize soft tissue irritation.

Case Study: Nondisplaced Calcaneus Fracture
To assist surgeons in restoring patient anatomy prior to fracture fixation, the Calc-Jak is an instrument designed to help pull displaced fractures of the calcaneus out to length. The Calc-Jak allows for medial/lateral, anterior/posterior, and superior/inferior translation of calcaneus fractures that can be locked in place using the cam levers. This optional system may be used in conjunction with the minimally invasive, sinus tarsi approach for treating calcaneus fractures with Mini-Calc Plates.
- Threaded pins are available in two diameters (4.0 mm and 5.0 mm) to match the sizing needs and bone density of the patien.
- Twin ball clamps allow for M/L, A/P, and S/I translation of a calcaneus fracture, can be locked in place individually.
- The fine tune adjustment block allows for additional calcaneal translation after the cam-levers have been locked.
- Ergonomic handle
