SpeedClamp: Product Description

The SpeedClamp is unique patella clamp made from 301 Full-Hardness Stainless Steel shell and has a medical grade Thermoplastic Elastomer overmold made from Santoprene.  The SpeedClamp is universal to any type of patella component and comes in standard and tall sizes.  It serves 5 primary purposes in total knee arthroplasty:

  1. Compression of patellar component:  The SpeedClamp uses spring force to maintain constant compression between the prepared patella and the cemented patellar component.
  2. Protects patellar component:  The Santoprene overmold protects the patellar component.
  3. Saves time:  While the SpeedClamp is compressing and protecting the patellar component at the beginning of the case, the procedure can continue.  This sequence change can save between 9-13 minutes of O.R. time and reduce costs and risk of infection.
  4. MIS friendly:  The ProClamp has a low-profile design that allows for use of MIS instrumentation.
  5. Novel outside retraction:  Retracting the patella can be a challenging aspect of total knee replacement.  The SpeedClamp when used with the U or N style ProRetract retractor serves as an outside patella retractor that allows for the surgeon to effectively “joystick” the patella.  This accomplishes three primary goals:
    1. Visualization:  Improves ability to see and work in the lateral aspect of the knee.
    2. Smaller Exposure:  Reduces constant need for bulky retractors to be placed internally on the outside of the lateral tibial plateau.  This can help allow for less quad invasion.
    3. Patellar ligament peeling:  Outside retraction can help prevent peeling or avulsing of the ligament from the tibial tubercle.
