intellijoint HIP® is a 3D miniature optical navigation device that provides surgeons with accurate, real-time intraoperative measurements to ensure proper selection and positioning of the new implant during hip replacement surgery. A miniature camera and tracker are used to accurately determine the cup position, leg length and hip offset.
Studies indicate component malposition causes instability1 and dislocations2 which are the most common causes of revision surgery for total hip arthroplasty.
With intellijoint HIP’s 3D mini-optical navigation technology, surgeons are able to obtain vital intraoperative measurements which assists with accurate size selection, positioning and alignment of implants3.
intellijoint HIP can assist in the prevention of:
- Hip instability/dislocation
- Implant loosening
- Leg length inequality
- Premature implant wear
- Revision hip surgery
