Orthopedic devicemakers partner for hip care


Orthofix and Limacorporate have partnered to provide hip dislocation care to patients in the U.S.

Their partnership combines Orthofix's Fitbone intramedullary nail system with Limacorporate's patient-specific, 3D-printed pelvic fixation device, according to a July 13 news release. The device aims to distract the femur to a correct position, adjust a leg-length discrepancy and allow for a hip replacement. 

"This solution will be the only offering in the U.S. for certain patients with hip dysplasia or abnormalities of the hip leading to leg-length discrepancy and reflects the strength and versatility of the Fitbone platform," Kimberley Elting, president of Orthofix Orthopedics, said in the release.
