This device is more evolved as it helps surmount some of the disadvantages of using traditional screws and other devices meant to secure softer tissue to bone.

A disposable gun that can be used for both arthroscopic and mini-open procedures is the USP of this device.

Eclipse enables more room for surgeons to accommodate a tendon alongside the implant. This device is a boon during many soft tissue repair procedures in the hand, wrist, knee, shoulder, ankle and foot. The key features of this device are its versatility, reliable and strong fixation and easy insertion.
