BUMAX has been picked as the sole supplier of screws for advanced and durable prosthetic knees by a German manufacturer of a waterproof and submersible prosthesis knee and foot system, WEIGEL+ medical.
BUMAX SDX 109 high strength super duplex fastener was the only screw on the market capable of providing a prosthetic knee joint with the necessary high strength and corrosion resistance to contribute to providing prosthesis solutions to people around the world.
The Niagara Foot is an affordable, high-performance prosthetic foot designed for individuals with active lifestyles brought to the market by WEIGEL+ medical (development and manufacturing) and DOI ortho-innovativ (distribution and education). It will be fitted with BUMAX fasteners for maximum strength and corrosion resistance.
The BUMAX SDX 109 will also be used for the All Terrain Knee, a mechanical prosthetic knee joints used by those with above-knee amputations. Both prosthetics can be used in aquatic environments as they purely work mechanically. However, this requires that all components are resistant to salt water, including the screws.
Super duplex stainless steel fasteners are unique as they combine super high strength with excellent corrosion resistance compared with alloy steel fasteners.
