Trauma implants are devices used in orthopedic surgery to treat various traumas such as fractures, dislocation, sprains, strains, burns etc. The implants are intended to stay in the body for many months and sometimes lifelong.

In 2019, Bactiguard and Zimmer Biomet partnered to develop and launch orthopedic trauma implants with the Bactiguard technology for infection prevention, to prevent post-operative infections.

The Bactiguard coated implants are now launched in Europe and in selected MEA markets.
