HIP POSITIONING SYSTEM

Overview


The Perfect Balance of Simplicity and Flexibility

With the acceptance of hip arthroscopy as an increasingly important procedure, Smith & Nephew continues to develop the tools that forge the path through this exciting frontier. And now we're bringing a new level of advanced simplicity to your procedures with the innovative HIP POSITIONING SYSTEM. Think hip arthroscopy from Smith & Nephew.


Flexible

HipPositioningSystem_Overview_Flexible

The Smith & Nephew Hip Positioning System offers the greatest range of motion with a unique, patented ball joint. The joint allows the hip to be easily flexed, abducted or adducted - movements especially important for emerging arthroscopic techniques. It functions in both lateral and supine positions to allow you the most procedural flexibility.

Convenient

Convenience is indispensable during any procedure and the HIP POSITIONING SYSTEM delivers. The C-arm-compatible distractor is equipped with a unique knee holder that stabilises the leg while in flexion, eliminating the need for extra operating room staff to hold the knee in position. Plus, the entire system is portable to adapt to your OR's evolving needs.

Simple

The simple design of the HIP POSITIONING SYSTEM is easy on your OR staff. One simple lifting motion quickly adjusts between extension and flexion. After the hip is repositioned, the system automatically locks in place to prevent movement. A simple control system allows you to adjust both fine and gross distraction, eliminating unnecessary strain on your OR staff.

Cost-Effective

With a design that allows it to attach easily to most standard OR tables, the HIP POSITIONING SYSTEM eliminates the need for adding an expensive fracture table to your OR. It's the cost-effective hip arthroscopy solution that's perfect for the surgery centre.
