OrthoGrid Systems introduced its new OrthoGrid Hip software application following FDA 510(k) clearance in February 2021. The new OrthoGrid Hip is the latest version of OrthoGrid System's distortion-correcting, implant-agnostic, intraoperative-alignment technology for direct anterior hip total hip arthroplasty (DAA THA) offered on the company's artificial-intelligence-enabled digital platform.
The application features new tools to enable surgeons to execute preoperative plans and achieve surgical goals with greater accuracy and efficiency, including support for an overlay technique. OrthoGrid Hip now offers new cup inclination and version tools that enable surgeons to target specific acetabular cup positioning and measure acetabular cup inclination and anteversion angles during cup placement. In addition, the new OrthoGrid Hip supports precise leg length and hip offset measurements to achieve desired biomechanical alignment.
Richard Boddington, co-CEO of OrthoGrid, said, "The small footprint, noninvasive design, and cost-effective price point make [this] an easy decision for hospitals and surgery centers, as they look to recover from this backlog of elective procedures created by the COVID-19 pandemic."
