Designing 'internal' devices can be more challenging - as they must be oriented properly and fit to the patient easily during placement.
The Matthews-Tessier offers a unique two-design style to manipulate the facial and frontal bone in multiple vectors.
The Matthews-Tesser device styles are the simple 2-hole and the mesh style footplate designs.
The footplate choice allows for either simple-minimal placement, or coverage of mesh over a larger area to disperse forces.
The gears are often criss-crossed to create a tilting force on the bones as they are being advanced - truely allowing for multidirectional adjustment with internal devices.
