DARPA's program manager, Mitchell Zakin, PhD. "If all technical challenges are met, we believe this innovative technology will provide superior clinical outcomes for patients."

"This announcement represents the spirit of innovation that drives Smith & Nephew scientists and engineers," said David Brumfield, vice president of product development in Smith & Nephew Orthopaedics' Trauma franchise. "We will use the full extent of our expertise, ground-breaking material technology and quality manufacturing to create the best possible treatment for those who have been injured while serving our country."

Smith & Nephew's history of orthopaedic trauma innovation includes the introduction of the compression hip screw and intramedullary hip fracture fixation. Additionally, Smith & Nephew was responsible for introducing the ILIZAROV(TM) method of external circular fixation to the United States, which is manifested today in its award winning TAYLOR SPATIAL FRAME(TM) device, a technology currently used to treat complex fractures sustained by US military personal.
