Title: (DE) EINSTELLBARE ORTHOPÄDISCHE VERBINDUNGEN
(EN) ADJUSTABLE ORTHOPEDIC CONNECTIONS
(FR) RACCORDEMENTS ORTHOPÉDIQUES RÉGLABLES
Abstract:
(EN) The disclosure includes methods and systems for making orthopedic connections where there is unique adjustability to the connection. Illustratively, one embodiment provides a connecting assembly for connecting a plurality of orthopedic components. Such connecting assemblies can include a first orthopedic component that provides a female bore. Additionally the assembly can include a second orthopedic component that can be or include a male-type connecting member that is positionable in the bore of the first orthopedic component. In one preferred form, the male-type connecting member will be a quasi-spherical member. The quasi-spherical member can include a textured outer surface, e.g., for contacting one or more walls or surfaces in the bore in a fashion that removeably locks or helps to removeably lock or fix the quasi-spherical member in the bore.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et des systèmes pour réaliser des raccordements orthopédiques dans lesquels le raccordement a une réglabilité unique. À titre illustratif, un premier mode de réalisation concerne un ensemble de raccordement pour relier une pluralité d'éléments orthopédiques. De tels ensembles de raccordement peuvent comprendre un premier élément orthopédique qui fournit un perçage femelle. De plus, l'ensemble peut comprendre un second élément orthopédique qui peut être ou comprendre un élément de raccordement du type mâle qui peut être positionné dans le perçage du premier élément orthopédique. Dans une première forme préférée, l'élément de raccordement du type mâle sera un élément quasi-sphérique. L'élément quasi-sphérique peut comprendre une surface extérieure texturée, par exemple pour entrer en contact avec une ou plusieurs parois ou surfaces dans le perçage de façon à verrouiller ou aider à verrouiller ou fixer de façon amovible l'élément quasi-sphérique dans le perçage.
