TL-HEX TrueLok Hexapod System™

Stable. Simple. Versatile.


TL-HEX is a hexapod external circular fixation system developed at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC) in Dallas, Texas, US.

It consists of hardware and associated software for simplified deformity correction and trauma management. TL-HEX will support fracture fixation, limb lengthening, treatment of non-union and deformity corrections in long bones in both adult and pediatric patients.


The system consists of circular and semi-circular external supports secured to the bones by wires and half pins and interconnected by six struts. This allows multi-planar adjustment of the external supports.


The web-based TL-HEX software supports surgeons throughout pre/intra/post-operative phases.
