Fields of Clinical Use

GetMet helps with the removal of pins and Cerclage wires. Fast location, small incisions, minimal soft tissue damage. Fast recovery. No harmful radiation.

The GetMet device has a variety of clinical uses across different fields. In orthopaedics, it is especially useful for removing metallic materials used in the treatment of fractures, such as blades, screws, Kirschner pins, and cerclage wires. It is also highly effective in later removing screws, plates, pins, and cerclage wires in elective orthopaedic surgeries, especially foot and hand surgery. In emergency situations, the device can be used to remove foreign metallic objects like needles, nails, fish hooks, bullets, and shrapnel.

The device is also suitable for deeper surgeries such as laparotomy or thoracotomy in trauma and elective operations, where it can be used sealed in a sterile bag to locate metallic foreign bodies or other metallic materials used in the operation itself. In addition to orthopaedics, gynaecologists and other surgeons can also use the device for similar purposes. The GetMet device also has military applications, where it can be used for removing bullets, shrapnel, and other metallic foreign objects. Lastly, veterinarians can use the device for fracture treatment and elective surgery when using metallic objects.
