Are reusable MultiPegs™ compatible with disposable Osstell® SmartPegs?
Compatibilty of MultiPegs™
Although in principle, the two systems give the same ISQ values for an implant, they are not directly interchangeable.
If the Penguin RFA is used with Osstell® Smartpegs, the measurements need to be adjusted according to this table. If an Osstell® instrument is used with MultiPegs™, use this table instead. This is because MultiPegs™ and Smartpegs® are made from different materials (titanium vs. aluminum). MultiPegs™ must be used to get the benefits of the calibrated Penguin RFA system.
