Medacta Launches MOTO Partial Knee, Modular Shoulder

By Julie A. Vetalice

Medacta launched the MOTO™ Medial Partial Knee, the modular Medacta Shoulder system and MasterLoc LAT PLUS, an addition to its MasterLoc hip.

MOTO is a compartment-specific, fixed-bearing solution for unicompartmental knee arthroplasty, of particular interest for surgeon use in an outpaitent setting. Design of each compartment derives from an anthropometric database of >45,000 CT and MRI knee scans, while instrumentation is designed to support precise bone resection.

The modular Medacta Shoulder platform, which received FDA 510(k) clearance in 4Q17, includes Anatomic and Reverse designs in a wide range of sizes and adjustable offsets. This is Medacta's first shoulder system; it is now available throughout the U.S. and EU.

MasterLoc LAT PLUS includes a progressive triple offset to enhance stability without affecting leg length. The MasterLoc systems employ Mectagrip plasma-sprayed titanium coating to enhance initial fixation.
