Shotel™ Ankle Arthrodesis Nail System

The first FDA cleared ankle arthrodesis nail system.

The Shotel™ Ankle Arthrodesis Nail System is an intramedullary (IM) nail
intended to provide compression and rigid fixation for primary ankle fusions.
The unique curved design allows an approach through the medial side
of the talus and is designed to achieve fusion at the tibiotalar joint while
allowing unrestricted motion to remain at all other joints. The Shotel™ Ankle
Arthrodesis Nail System provides a minimally invasive surgical option which
may allow early weight bearing.

The History Behind Our Name


The shotel sword is a traditional Ethiopian sword characterized by its distinct sickle-shaped blade. It originated in the northern regions of Ethiopia and was primarily used by the Abyssinian Empire warriors, dating back to at least the 6th century. The unique crescent shape of the blade allows for effective hooking and trapping of an opponent’s weapon, making it a formidable tool in close-quarter combat. The shotel’s design is centered around quick maneuverability and offensive capabilities, often used in conjunction with a shield or another hand weapon. Today, the shotel sword is primarily considered a historical artifact and a symbol of Ethiopia’s rich martial heritage.

#ShotelSwordHistory: Dating back to the Axumite Empire, the Shotel Sword, also known as “Shotel Halchis,” holds great historical significance. Warriors of Ethiopia wielded this blade with remarkable dexterity and ingenuity in battle. Due to its distinct shape and lethal capabilities, this weapon became synonymous with Ethiopia’s defense and cultural heritage.

Exploring the art and craftsmanship behind the Shotel Sword reveals an exceptional level of skill and detail exhibited by Ethiopian blacksmiths. Their expertise in creating these masterpieces reflects a deep understanding of metallurgy and the unique requirements of a combat-ready weapon.
