Penguin RFA measure implant stability and osseointegration to enhance decisions about when to load. Especially important when using protocols with shorter treatment time or treating risk patients.
Objective and non-invasive operation
Penguin RFA measures the resonance frequency of the reusable MulTipeg TM with a non-contacting technique. The frequency is displayed as an ISQ-value (Implant Stability Quotient) from 1-99. The ISQ value correlates strongly to the micro mobility of the implant.
Optimized Patient Care – Now in the palm of your hand
Just mount the MulTipegTM , aim for the top and the ISQ value will be displayed in less than a second. Values above 70 means high stability and are typically used for one-stage and immediate loading.
By taking a base line value at implant placement and another before loading, the degree of osseointegration can be measured.
More than 700 articles on the Resonance Frequency Analysis (RFA) technique have been published in scientific journals since 1996. Here you can find a selection of the most important. We also recommend the summarizing article by Professor Lars Sennerby, written exclusively for the PenguinRFA site, which explains the RFA technique, the ISQ scale and how to clinically use PenguinRFA.
What do I need?
To get started, you need the PenguinRFA Instrument kit and MulTipegs. If you are working under sterile conditions you also need sterile covers
PenguinRFA Instrument Kit
For all major implant systems
Durable, tissue-friendly titanium
ISQ Standard CalibratedTM
Sterile PenguinRFA Cover
If working in a sterile environment, we recommend the tailor-made sterile Penguin instrument Cover (CE-marked). NeoGuard Transducer cover, Ref 610-843 available from Civco, is an alternative for other markets.
Dynamic Demo Model
To demonstrate PenguinRFA and to simulate different ISQ, this Dynamic Demo Model is available. To change the ISQ of the embedded demo implant, the top of the model is twisted.
