The PRODUCTS

The IMPLANT

It is the smallest dual mobility cup on the market with the thickest polyethylene.
Its hybrid hemispherical and truncated-cone shape meet the demands of surgeons.

The symmetrical double mobility neck allows for simple and easy positioning. The mounted neck of a polyethylene insert is easily adjustable to extend the life of the prosthesis. The 3 neck sizes assist the surgeon in obtaining the stability and mobility of the prosthesis.

Its unique size adapts to a maximum of anatomies. Its specific design also allows for a correction and/or an associated gesture.

The INSTRUMENT
SET

simplified
sterile
disposable

Impactor/ Neck Holder
The impactor/neck holder allows to identify both the volume of the stem and the cup during the surgical preparation. It also participates in the definitive impaction of the stem and cup. Finally, this tool is able to position the test and definitive necks and to reduce the prosthesis.
Universal Gripper
The holder is used to position and orient the stem and cup during the placement of these components. A unique fingerprint on the components makes this universal tool simple and intuitive.
The Handle
A handle is provided in the instrumentation kit in order to use the burr/reamer by hand according to the habits of the surgeon.
Cutter
The unique cutter makes it possible to prepare a clean and universal bone impression, compatible with the stem and cup. It is cannulated, allowing the surgeon to perform precision milling.
K wire
The K wire provided are compatible with the cutter allowing the surgeon to control, under the guidance of the necessary settings, for the stability and mobility of the prosthesis.
The trial neck
The trial neck allows the surgeon to test the stability and mobility of the prosthesis during the surgical procedure. It also guarantees the aesthetic appearance of the hand by maintaining the height of the thumb column.
