KLS Martin Mandible Distractors

Content Contributor

KLS Martin, a family-run medical technology company based in Germany, has developed numerous distraction devices adapted for various regions of the craniofacial skeleton. The specific device selected will depend on the area of the jawbone that needs to be lengthened. For infants with Pierre Robin sequence, the Zurich micro II distractor is a common choice. It is an internal device with a small arm that protrudes from the skin, usually just behind the ear. It has the ability to length the bone by 15-30mm. The design of the device is symmetrical (allowing for use on the right and/or left side) and the system has an anti-relapse ratchet that prevents accidental backward movement.
