Tecres has produced pre-formed Spacers since 1996 which are ready to use with pre-formed shapes and different sizes. Tecres Spacers have excellent mechanical properties that allow the patient to deambulate with partial weight bearing and have been tested to support full weight bearing for 6 months. Tecres Spacers are the most studied in the world, with more than 500 cases published on peer-reviewed journals.
