In 1987 litos/ started its history with a world premiere.
The company presented the first multidirectional locking screw internal fixator for spinal surgery1. The so-called Compression Plate Fixator has granted numerous international patents and has proven itself a thousandfold.
Many aspects of this system have been optimised in the past. The presentation of tifix©-technology2 in 1993 represented another milestone of internal fixator technology and was once more a world premiere.
By locking the screw head without further devices it was now possible to produce multidirectional locking screw plates of all thicknesses, the surgeon's options were expanded enormously.
tifix©-technology enabled litos/ to build up a comprehensive variety of products for internal fixation. Today litos/ still is the only company worldwide whose internal multidirectional locking screw
product line reaches from tip to toe.
tifix©-technology is comprehensively protected by national and international patents. It forms the basis on which our research laboratories constantly work on forward-looking innovations.
