R3 Design and Technology
The R3 Acetabular Cup is engineered for multiple bearing options and provides a porous coating designed to enhance fixation and bony in-growth. STIKTITE◊ coating provides enhanced initial mechanical stability, which is particularly important in damaged or less biologically active bone. The multi-bearing cup, in addition to providing flexibility for you the surgeon, provides a foundation designed to reduce wear. Optimized inserts accommodate larger head sizes and help the R3 system achieve a greater range of motion.

Larger femoral heads provide greater ROM
Increased range of motion is a key design impetus for the R3 Acetabular System. The catalyst for a Revolution in Motion is a commitment to design synergy between neck geometry and liner providing maximum head/shell ratios (36mm head size - 52mm shell size).
Additionally, the liners sit flush with the face of the shell, further maximizing range of motion. The resulting enhanced ROM decreases the risk of impingement, joint subluxation and prosthetic loosening—all contributors to revision surgery.
OXINIUM ◊ , CoCr, Biolox Forte, Biolox Delta
R3 system with OXINIUM alloy is an advanced bearing option. OXINIUM is an Oxidized Zirconium alloy (97.5% Zirconium and 2.5% Niobium) with a transformed ceramic surface providing the wear performance of ceramics and the strength of metals. This provides all of the benefits of ceramic and metal bearing technology. OXINIUM combined with our XLPE(highly cross-linked polyethylene) liner makes up our proprietary VERILAST◊ Technology.

Revolutionary Locking Mechanism
The unique locking mechanism of the R3 Acetabular System allows you to reposition the liner without compromising stability.
This functionality enables intraoperative adjustments for optimal liner position. Further, poly thickness isn't compromised by the liner locking mechanism allowing a 5mm thick XLPE liner, to provide greater thickness at the apex and load-bearing areas.
REFLECTION◊ acetabular components built a legacy of success on innovation and refinement which was used as the foundation for today's R3 Acetabular System.
Critical to this success is the polished inner shell surface. The R3 Acetabular System continues this legacy by reducing wear on the back-side of the liner by utilizing this polished counterface in the refined cup design.
Note: REFLECTION acetabular components built a legacy of success on innovation and refinement. The R3 Acetabular System continues this legacy by carrying over fundamental features such as the polished inner shell surface and the ability to reposition liners.
