History

History


Based on biomechanical principles clinically proven over more than 40 years2.

100% survivorship for aseptic loosening with follow-up ranging out to 15 years1.

 

Design

Design


Collarless, polished and double tapered implant that utilises a world-class stem design.

Instrumentation is designed for axial and rotational control during insertion.

  • Intuitive in-line/axial stem introduction.
  • Intraoperative choice of/transition between captive and semi-captive stem introduction designed to reduce the likelihood of cement void creation.
Function

Function


Recreation of biomechanics can be challenging, but with the right system this can be easy and effective.

  • Comprehensive range of 36 (CDH), 38, 45 and 50mm offset stems. Cement-in-Cement revision options are available.
  • Lateral shoulder improves cement pressurisation, proximal visualisation and final stem position3.
  • Highly-polished surface of the TaperFit stem is designed to greatly reduce the risk of micromotion-induced abrasion at the stem-cement interface.
