WARSAW, Ind. JUNE 10, 2019 — Founded in 2004, Response Ortho (RO) is celebrating 15 years of business – with 2019 proving to be the most exciting since joining the WishBone Medical Family of Companies. Based in Istanbul, Turkey, RO designs, develops and manufactures patented solutions for advanced fracture fixation and bone deformity correction. To date, the company has delivered 35 CE marked systems to Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), with sales projections bolstered since being acquired by WishBone Medical, Inc.
On the forefront of orthopedic technology, Response Ortho boasts a diverse portfolio of leading-edge solutions, from external fixators, to plates, rods, screws, pins and pre-operative/post-operative software.
“I started Response Ortho with the dream of creating innovative, thoughtfully designed orthopedic products to help surgeons deliver optimal results for their patients. From the beginning, we invested in state-of-the-art resources to design, test, validate and manufacture in-house to maintain the highest standards of quality.”

Response Ortho is an innovator in Radiographic Navigation Software for Hexapod Fixators – a groundbreaking improvement from manual measurement. This pioneered technology is integrated into their CE marked Smart Correction® Circular Hexapod External Fixator System, which received the highly-respected TÜBİTAK-TTGV-TÜSİAD Technology Grand Prize Award* in 2012. With great demand, Smart Correction® sales quickly made a positive impact on the domestic economy and became the first Turkish-made product of the orthopedic industry to gain global recognition.
Additionally, the RO team was an early developer of web-based pre-operative planning software and today, offers Click2Correct® – a free, secure, highly-intuitive planning and templating software utilizing Dynamic Vectoral Drawing Technology. Accessible from any desktop or mobile device, Click2Correct® improves efficiency and can receive multiple data formats.
Since its first launch, Response Ortho has focused sales efforts in EMEA markets – an effective approach for both the company and Turkish economy. Moving forward, RO is working with WishBone Medical to expand market reach into the United States.
Response Ortho’s 15 years of innovation serves as a springboard for the WishBone R&D team – RO systems will be further refined and offered in sterile packed, single-use disposable kits around the world.
