Patent for Sale:Orthopedic Osseous Fixation Devices
The second device is a resposable, universally adjustable external fixation appliance. It is designed to engage a number of skeletal pins and unitize them into a rigid configuration by simply twisting the a draw bar locking nut at one end. Since it does not rely on fixed drill guides built into the device, a surgeon is free to place pins in any plane dictated by clinical and radiographic criteria and not by pre-determined positioners. The rapid placement of this device will also lend itself to military applications and other emergent situations where fast and safe fracture immobilization is indicated.
Primary Application of the Technology
The Problem Solved by the Technology
Universal adjustability is provided by the external fixator device which has no competitve product with such a feature.
How the Technology Solves the Problem
Universal adjustability is achieved with an assembly of articulated ball joints strung together on a wire that when tightened will render a loose, snake-like appliance into a rigid bar and hold a number of external pins solidly in place for fracture management.
The patented external fixator does not have dedicated drill guides, making it more universally adjustable.
Comments on Deal Structure, Potential Terms and Restrictions
Absent an outright sale, we could also consider a license agreement for a percentage of gross sales with a guaranteed minimum over the life of the patents.
The seller may consider selling these patents individually.

Class 606: Surgery
Class 174: Electricity: Conductors And Insulators
This class is for inventions relating to the structure of electrical conductors and insulators and insulators and the apparatus specialized to mounting, supporting, encasing in conduits, and/or housing the same. Conductors may be bare or be encased in insulation, may be single strand or plural strand, may be of single conductor form or there may be a plurality of conductors associated together to form a cable. Since all materials that have the property of being conductors of electricity and all devices made therefrom may be termed electrical conductors, only those structures that are specially designed to conduct electricity as their proximate purpose are placed in this class. Insulators are placed here when the structure thereof is claimed, which structure is specially designed for spacing two or more devices of different electrical potential from each other or for spacing one or more devices from ground. Since all materials which are poor conductors of electricity and devices made therefrom may be termed electrical insulators, only those structures whose proximate purpose is that already stated. Conduits are placed in this class only when some characteristic is claimed which limits the same to the electrical use.Subclass 170: Hooks
