INTERFACE Liners are available in Standard Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) as well as ApeX-LNK™ Highly Cross-linked (UHMWPE), that has been sterilized without irradiation to assure maximum resistance to oxidation.

Highly crosslinked polyethylene is rapidly becoming the gold standard material for hip replacement bearing surfaces. OMNI life science’s patent pending process for the production of it’s proprietary ApeX-LNK Highly Cross-linked polyethylene acetabular cup liners represents the state of the art in polyethylene technology for orthopaedic applications.

ApeX-LNK Highly Cross-linked Polyethylene represents the state of the art in polyethylene technology for Orthopaedic Applications. Not all highly cross-linked polyethylenes are the same. The ApeX-LNK polyethylene used in Interface Acetabular liners has been specifically formulated and processed to optimize its performance in hip replacement applications.

Results:

The ApeX-LNK process provides 88% wear reduction in hip simulator testing compared to standard polyethylene*. The patent pending ApeX-LNK annealing and packaging system virtually eliminates free radicals and prevents oxidation. You can be confident that ApeX-LNK Polyethylene is optimally cross linked, packaged, and sterilized for performance and safety.

APEX Modular Hip System

This modular design allows a large selection of necks, enabling the proper combination of anteversion angle, lateral offset, and neck length/leg length, to restore proper soft tissue tension and joint biomechanics. The modular attachment mechanism is new to orthopaedic implants, but the concept was derived from conventional mechanical tool design.

APEX K2 Modular Hip System

Inspired by the clinically proven design profile of the original dual-tapered stem, the APEX K2 MODULAR™ Hip System builds on the philosophy of a dual-tapered trapezoidal stem geometry that facilitates primary fixation and rotational stability. The patented Dual Press™ technology allows the modular neck to fully seat against the proximal surface of the stem, without compromising final implant strength or structural integrity.
