Tapered-Wedge Stem Design

The tapered-wedge stem design is rotation resistant with its medial and lateral sides in close contact with the cortical bone. Bone preservation and gradual load transfer from proximal to distal can be achieved, and the stem is also suitable for minimally invasive procedures because of its laterally reduced design, thin shape, and short length.

The stem is available in smaller size pitches to be applicable to a wider range of patients.

Surface Treatment Technology

Ti-Growth ® C *
The used plasma coating technology used has proven clinical results worldwide. The thickness of the coating on the distal 10mm length of area sprayed increases gradationally from distal (0.2 mm) to proximal (0.5 mm) to prevent stress concentration.

Acetabular Shell

Initia acetabular hemispherical shell is available in three versions: No hole,
3 hole and Multi-hole hemispherical shell. It's polished inner surface minimizes backside wear of the polyethylene liner, and the outer surface coated with "Ti-Growth ® C" enhances initial stability.

Acetabular Liner

Initia Acetabular Liner is made of GUR 1020 resin moderately crosslinked ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene. Crosslinked at 75kGy gamma irradiation, annealed at 120⁰C, and sterilized with gas plasma. The locking tabs of the liner fit corresponding locking grooves of the shell to provide rotational stability.
