The Locker

The Locker is a disposable device for the preparation and supply of acrylic resin that is able to strengthen and stabilize the mechanical capacity of synthesis devices applied to osteoporotic bones (screw augmentation).

The Locker include:

1) an acrylic resin:

  • easy to prepare;
  • high fluidity for an optimal application;
  • high radiopacity;
  • proven viscosity for a better control during injection stage.

2) device for injection:

  • Enables a controlled and precise resin supply;
  • Enables the immediate suspension of the injection thus ensuring the patient’s security;
  • It is complete and does not require any external accessory.

3) flexible connection tube to connect needle with the gun and keep the operator at a safe distance from radiation
