DJO Global, Inc. (“DJO” or the “Company”), a leading global provider of medical technologies designed to get and keep people moving, today announced the launch of the AltiVate Anatomic Shoulder System. The system features a short, bone sparing humeral stem anatomically designed through morphologically-based fit analysis to optimize metaphyseal fit and stability. The stem also features P2, DJO’s proprietary “porous porous” coating that provides superior bone ingrowth. Coupled with the stem is a glenoid component with patent-pending “Drop and Go™” technology encompassing trilobe features on the peripheral pegs for immediate fixation upon implantation. This data-driven result is a truly anatomic reconstruction with fixation you can feel.
