DJO this week said it has launched its new Empowr Acetabular and Empowr Partial Knee systems.
Both systems give surgeons a comprehensive and efficient solution for all total hip arthroplasty and unicompartmental knee arthroplasty approaches and settings, according to the company.
“We are building on the proven success, deep clinical research, and differentiated design technologies of the Empowr platform with the launch of these new systems,” VP of sales and marketing Louis Vogt said in a news release. “DJO is committed to improving patient outcomes and surgeon success, and with just a single tray, these Empowr systems will enable surgeons to be more efficient and effective, especially in the rapidly growing outpatient setting.”
The Empowr Acetabular System uses anthropometric data and advanced material technologies to restore healthy kinematics and individual patient anatomy. Its titanium porous coating aids in the apposition of bone and the HXe+ liners are specifically designed for ball and socket kinematics and blended with vitamin E to reduce oxidation and long-term wear.
The Empowr Partial Knee system is designed using anthropometric data to create anatomically shaped femoral and tibial components for comprehensive bone coverage in medial or lateral compartments while also minimizing the potential for overhang and maximizing natural motion.
