In the late 70s in Verona, Italy, orthopaedic researcher Giovanni De Bastiani pioneered the concept of “dynamization,” based on the natural ability of bone to repair itself. He developed a modular system of external axial frame devices that could be fitted to a bone, allowing micromovement at the fracture site to stimulate bone healing. Along with some colleagues, De Bastiani founded Orthofix in 1980 in order to continue the development of these devices.
Now headquartered in Lewisville, Texas, Orthofix has become a diversified, global medical device company focused on improving patients’ lives through the development of cutting-edge, orthopaedic and spine solutions to physicians worldwide. Orthofix is the driving force behind the JuniOrtho™ brand.
