All of us who practice this type of surgery have had some experience in which this device would have made a difference.

For example, I received a patient who came from Australia He came with a complicated implant and asked for the brand, model, even the name of the doctor who put it on. He answered ‘I do not know doctor’. In cases like this, the only way to proceed is by operating. Only with accurate prior information can I know exactly what my starting point is.

The new product of Motiva Implants allows the specialist to obtain a fifteen-digit identification number with the help of a radio frequency reader. With this data, both the doctor and the patient can access a mobile application capable of identifying the implants and offer information such as the name of the manufacturer, date of manufacture, batch number, among others.

Unlike the warranty cards that were previously delivered to users, the chip can not be lost or forgotten.
