LNS Helps Nonprofit Pro-
vide Fracture Surgery to
the Injured Poor
In keeping with its ongoing com- mitment to support global humanitar- ian actions, LNS provides significant discounts to organizations such as SIGN Fracture Care.
“In many parts of the world, a per- son with a bone fracture may not heal properly due to the absence of adequate facilities, lack of orthopedic education and unavailability of implant tools and devices,” said an LNS spokesperson. “SIGN Fracture Care’s mission is to provide these resources at no cost to hospitals and patients in developing countries so that every injured person can quickly heal and return to work or school.”
One aspect of the organization’s mission is to provide orthopedic instru- ments and implants that are designed and manufactured in its Richland, WA, facility. LNS bar feeders, chip con- veyors and other products enable the factory’s CNC machines to efficiently produce these high-precision devices.
According to SIGN, the amount of the LNS discount on a recent purchase allows the organization to provide a life repairing implant to 65 people.
Thus far SIGN Fracture Care en- ables 368 hospitals in 56 countries to improve the well-being of their pa- tients. “The people of LNS are proud to assist SIGN in furthering this important work,” said the spokesperson. Sign Fracture Care is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization.
