DJO, a subsidiary of Colfax Corporation, introduced its newest offering, EMPOWR Dual Mobility™ for hip replacement.
EMPOWR Dual Mobility offers the industry’s largest assembled head size for a given cup size, aiding in enhanced joint stability. To address the risk of malseating, which has been reported in a study to occur in 6% of legacy modular dual mobility cases, EMPOWR Dual Mobility has a robust locking mechanism aided by a uniquely designed dome peg and locking tabs. This locking feature helps in achieving robust cup-liner engagement, helping enhance corrosion resistance. To help reduce oxidation and long-term wear, all polyethylene bearings in this dual mobility system are HXe+, a highly crosslinked material blended with Vitamin E. These features are combined with one tray of instrumentation.
EMPOWR Dual Mobility is part of the EMPOWR™ Hip and Knee portfolio designed to help restore healthy kinematics and provide surgical efficiencies optimized for today’s health care environment.
