WARSAW, Ind., Nov. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WishBone Medical, Inc. announces the acquisition of Response Ortho. Response Ortho has a complete pediatric line of external and internal fixation and deformity correction products.
Response Ortho has been in business for fourteen years and has built a modern, high-tech manufacturing facility with access to an experienced engineering and technical labor force.

Eighteen of the current product systems can be sold in the US now and we are working on FDA clearance for the remaining products.
