For orthopaedic surgeons and hospitals seeking to improve patient outcomes of hip replacement surgery, PelvAssist™ (patent pending) is setting the standard in hip alignment. It integrates with current operative techniques to display the precise positioning of hip implants. PelvAssist™ allows surgeons to move beyond visual alignment while simultaneously providing a low-cost and portable alternative to today’s computer assisted surgery.


How it Works

  • one sensor tracks pelvis motion

  • another sensor tracks the motion of surgical tools

  • both sensors communicate with a computer

  • software algorithms calculate relative positioning information

  • positioning parameters are displayed on a screen (i.e. leg length, abduction angle, etc.)

Technical Benefits

  • no need for bulky and time consuming surgical navigation systems

  • small sensors integrate with current surgical tool

  • system works with any surgical approach
