Smart Solutions | innovative 3D 'off the shelf' implants


KLS Martin pioneered 'off the shelf' 3D solutions based on average CT patient data and standard osteotomy patterns

While CT based individual implants are an ideal option, when the need arises at a moment's notice - the best solution is one that is always ready.

A balance of strength and flexibility - this is the challenge of designing products for the surgeon to modify and protect the cranium.

Basic goals of cranial implant design are simple -

  • Protect the brain in areas of missing bone
  • When intended, act as a barrier between tissue layers
  • Produce a shape that is symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing
  • Be quickly and easily applied to minimize surgical time


These goals are difficult to meet with flat meshes and bone substitutes - they must be malleable enough to contour, but still stiff enough to protect.

We worked alongside neurosurgeons in creating 'off the shelf' 3D contoured solutions for many situations, from Chiari malformation to Pteronial approach 3D mesh.
