AltiVate® Reverse Shoulder system and EMPOWR Knee system enhance the Mathys portfolio

The Swiss prothesis expert is expanding its portfolio to include the AltiVate Reverse Shoulder and the EMPOWR Knee joint replacement systems, which will be available from May 1, 2022.

The AltiVate Reverse Shoulder: helping patients and clinicians reach higher

Mathys is proud to be launching the AltiVate Reverse Shoulder system as part of its own shoulder product portfolio to enlarge the indication specific solutions. This system combines enhanced fixation technologies and precision instrumentation to achieve an exceptional fit and help restore patient mobility. The AltiVate Reverse Shoulder builds on the clinical success of DJO’s RSP implant – the first reverse shoulder implant to successfully incorporate a lateralised centre of rotation (COR). The stem design is based on CT scan studies that determined the optimal shell-to-stem position and the best possible anatomical fit. 

The AltiVate Reverse Shoulder features a humeral neck-shaft angle of 135°, which has been shown to reduce inferior scapular notching, resulting in improved clinical outcomes. With a total of seven glenosphere sizes, maximum COR compatibility is achieved. The AltiVate Reverse Shoulder system enhances short-term and long-term fixation on both the glenoid and humeral sides, thanks to the stable initial fixation and conditions that foster bony ingrowth. A variety of intraoperative options are offered, meaning it can be adapted to complex anatomies and deliver the best possible results for both patients and clinicians.

The EMPOWR Knee System – versatile implants for versatile needs

The EMPOWR Knee is a comprehensive implant system that promotes healthy motion through tissue-guided articulation. The system comprises two cutting-edge prostheses: the EMPOWR 3D Knee and the EMPOWR PS Knee, each tailored to meet specific patient needs.

The EMPOWR 3D Knee uses Dual-Pivot articulation to replicate a natural range of motion and can be used either with or without a preserved posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), with equivalent clinical outcomes. The EMPOWR PS Knee, by contrast, is specifically designed for cases where the PCL requires replacement. It is engineered to provide optimum stability through seamless cam articulation. Both the 3D Knee and the PS Knee come with a single-radius femoral component and tibial inserts made of e+, a polyethylene rich in vitamin E specially developed by DJO to promote knee implant longevity. The asymmetric baseplates on both models maximize tibial coverage while eliminating overhang, resulting in optimal baseplate fixation.

With these new additions to its implant portfolio, Mathys Ltd Bettlach is consolidating its position as a leading provider of orthopaedic endoprosthetic solutions, and continuing to allow patients to maintain maximum mobility.
