Orthopaedic trauma implants

Made in Switzerland

Switzerland, Bridges and Tradition

Bonebridge implants are named after Swiss bridges and do therefore not only refer to the company name but also to Switzerland and its traditional values. Precision, accuracy, timeliness, endurance and quality to only name a few are of outmost importance not only in orthopaedic trauma but also in civil engineering and bridge construction. Swiss engineers like Robert Maillart (1872-1940) and Christian Menn (1927-2018) have gained international fame and paved the way for modern bridge architecture. They have been responsible for such prominent bridges as the Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge in Boston, USA or the Salginatobelbrücke in Switzerland (named an international historic civil engineering landmark by the American Society of Civil Engineers in 1991). As Robert Maillart and Christian Menn have shaped the world of civil engineering, the Swiss founders of the AO/ASIF Maurice E. Muller (1918-2009), Martin Allgöwer (1917-2007), Hans Willenegger (1910-1998), Robert Schneider (1912-1990) and Walter Bandi (1912-1997) have shaped the world of orthopaedics.


The Bonebridge SALGINA 2.5mm Volar Distal Radius System is named after the SALGINA Bridge in Switzerland. The Bridge is located in the Salginatobel near the village of Schiers in the Canton of Graubünden. The Salginatobel Bridge is a reinforced concrete arch bridge designed by world famous Swiss civil engineer Robert Maillart. It was constructed between 1929 and 1930. The bridge was highly acclaimed and received several awards. In 1947 the bridge was featured in a four-month exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and in 1991 it was declared an International Historic Civil Engineering landmark by the American Society of Civil Engineers. The Salginatobel Bridge is designated a Swiss heritage site of national significance.

Reducing complexity and easy access

An ongoing process

We aim to reduce complexity in all aspects of orthopaedic trauma. This not only means reducing the complexity in the design process, the design itself, the production, the instruments and the usability but also in logistics and especially in the approachability of the company.

Coming soon...

Bonebridge portfolio to cover 90% of orthopaedic trauma

Bonebridge is comitted to launch further implants covering important aspects of orthopaedic trauma in 2020. The products have been already named after different Swiss bridges and do reflect on the application, design and appearance of each of the future products. Digging into the story behind the names may already reveal the clinical problem the product may adress...


We are currently putting a lot of effort into the expansion of our portfolio in order to reach our goal of covering 90% of orthopaedic trauma. We plan on being able to provide solutions for the most common indications by the end of  2020.
