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 Acumed MINI-Calc® Plates.
