EXTERNAL FIXATOR SET, Orthofix Galaxy, 2020

The Orthofix Galaxy external fixator was selected as the new external fixator for MSF projects. This set was gradually introduced during 2020 and becomes the first choice in 2021. Gexfix material can still be supplied as long as there are stocks available at the supply centres.

Please note that the two external fixation systems are NOT compatible with each other. Therefore, the parts from the Gex-Fix set should NOT be mixed with the parts from the Orthofix set.

The external fixator set which is proposed in the surgical instruments sets allows to face most of the situations as well in adults as in children.


Each set allows 8 to 10 assemblies.

The use of external fixator sets implies precise and regular management of their composition. All items can be ordered separately.
