BASIC INFORMATION


THE UNIQUE PROPERTIES OF CHRISOFIX® PRODUCTS


The first patent on Chrisofix® technology was filed by K. Bolla MD., the founder of Chrisofix® Ltd. (Schaffhausen, Switzerland) at the end of 1995. The manufacturing of the Chrisofix® products was started in 1997 by Orkrisz Ltd. (Budapest). Since then, Chrisofix® Ltd. has been continuously extending its product range by developing new, patent-protected splinting technologies and products. The Chrisofix® technology is the newest fixation method characterized by combining the advantages of circular (e.g. plaster of Paris, thermoplastic materials) and segmental fixations (splints and ortheses). The use of Chrisofix® products makes the splinting quicker and more economical than the earlier developed limb fixation methods.


DUE TO THE OUR TECHNOLOGY


  • all Chrisofix® ortheses ensure semicircular or circular fixation, they are adjustable and readjustable without water or heat, within one minute.
  • all products are stable and mouldable at the same time.
  • the readjustability to the same patient excludes the necessity of re-splinting with new material.
  • most of the traditional splints and custom-made thermoplastic products can be replaced by Chrisofix® ortheses.
  • earlier unrealisable therapeutic ideas become part of daily therapy
    - chest orthesis for rib fracture
    - quick interchangeability of an immobilising night splint to a less restricting one.
  • the Chrisofix® Forte versions (stable circular fixation) can be used instead of plaster of Paris on the upper limb before and after surgery, which may allow
    - earlier start with physiotherapy and
    - more convenient daily hygiene, since the splints can be removed and reapplied within one minute.
  • it became possible to create a new reusable product line for hospitals.
