Stryker VariAx 2 Hand Plating System
The VariAx© Hand Plating System offered by Stryker offers a wide variety of variable angled locking and non-locking plate options to treat the various types of hand fractures encountered.

The plates are made to be thin enough to prevent irritation to the surrounding soft tissue (referred to as “low profile”), but strong enough to maintain a stable fixation. Altogether, this hand plating system provides a wide variety of options for surgeons to choose from in order to treat most fractures found in the hand.
