Orthopedic devicemakers partner for hip care

Carly Behm -  

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.
