By Julie A. Vetalice

DJO Global launched the AltiVate™ Anatomic Shoulder, featuring P2, DJO’s proprietary “porous porous” coating designed to provide superior bone ingrowth.

The system features a short, bone-sparing humeral stem and a glenoid component with Drop and Go™ technology, encompassing trilobe features on the peripheral pegs for immediate fixation.

The system joins the AltiVate next-gen reverse shoulder, which launched in 3Q15.

AltiVate Anatomic is among DJO's products on display at the 2017 American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons/AAOS annual meeting.
