By popular request, we have now designed and manufactured a smaller, lower profile system to allow easier placement in particular on smaller patients.

16 hole Straight Plate
17 hole T-Plate
17 hole Extended T-Plate

This low profile plating system uses SOP™ technology with titanium alloy plates with dedicated screws and instrument sets.

They have been applied to a wide variety fractures in canines and felines starting at 1.8kg

Locking Plate

Controlled contouring preserves the integrity of the locking function

Small degrees of bending and twisting of the SOP™-LP is possible and no bending tees are required for this plate

Screws with unique cross driver design

The screw head incorporates a unique cross driver design which utilizes a custom screwdriver which comes as part of the instrument set. This has a small, soft grip handle in order to limit the amount of torque than can be applied

The SOP™- LP plate and screws are made from Ti-A16-4V

Titanium alloys have a high strength to weight ratio when compared to stainless steel which is useful in small patients and titanium alloy is highly biocompatible which again can be useful in minimising infection risk.

Titanium alloys are less stiff and strong when compared to stainless steel but the 2.0mm SOP-LP has been designed to be stiffer than the standard 2.0mm SOP which has been confirmed by computer modelling.

Precision Instruments

Carefully engineered instrument set with dedicate self tapping screws

By working closely with world renowned orthopaedic surgeons, bio-mechanical engineers, and expert material scientists, we have been able to produce a set of instruments & implants that not only break new ground, but are so technically advanced they meet & exceed all medical gold standards for sugical equipment.

Multiple size plates that can be cut to the required size

The titanium plates are available in 2.0mm, with three variations:

  • Straight
  • T-Plate and
  • Extended T-Plate

Accurate perpendicular drilling and tapping

Alignment pins are used which screw into the plate. These can be used to help the surgeon ensure the drill guide and therefore the drill bit is perpendicular to the plate.
