Pivot Guardian total hip system
A post-free environment
In a study of 1,000 hip arthroscopies performed without the use of a perineal post, there were no groin-related soft tissue or nerve complications reported.1
Heel slip mitigation
Boa system boots with an achilles block designed to secure the patient’s ankle during distraction and hip procedures.
Vertical spar safety mechanism
Gas shock assisted and designed for precise foot and leg positioning.
Zero reportedgroin-related complications1
In a recent study of 1,000 hip arthroscopies performed without the use of a perineal post, investigators found that the procedure allowed for safe, adequate, reproducible access to the hip joint without groin-related soft tissue or nerve complications.1
The Pivot Guardian distraction system is designed to mitigate post-related complications.
The system includes a traction force guage that estimates the amount of force on the patient.
Designed to provide precise control and better range-of-motion. You can easily make adduction, abduction, as well as extension and flexion hip adjustments. It also allows for internal and external hip rotation.
Radiolucent carbon fiber construction minimizing the amount of metal components surrounding the hip, the anterior and posterior visualization during surgery—a "true AP radiographic shot."
The Pivot Guardian distraction system is designed to minimize the time and effort required for transport, setup and takedown.
Carbon fiber tabletop extension designed to support joint replacement and trauma procedures.
Carbon fiber femoral support for stability during surgery and improved visualization* of critical anatomy.2
*As compared to surgical procedures with no support.2
Allows for easy manipulation of the patient’s foot and leg during surgery.
Proprietary PostFree design built to support post-free surgery.
Leg and foot extension
Allows for streamlined patient positioning
Compatible with the Mako robot for total hip applications.
Smaller for easy storage.
Deliver precise fit and adjustment to distraction system boots.
Designed to secure the patient's ankle during distraction.
Zero-degrees of Trendelenburg
Achieve post-free distraction with zero-degrees of Trendelenburg.
Freedom to operate
Designed with the surgeon in mind and does not require a change in hand position or portal placement.
Stronger than the leading competition
Tensile resistance tested to be 3x stronger than the competition.3
Resistant to patient
pre-operative skin preparation chemicals
2.5x stronger than the leading competitor when exposed to patient skin preparation chemicals, like Chloraprep.3
