Reliable – Safe – Solution
The concept of double mobility was developed by Prof. Gilles Bousquet in 1975, with the aim of treating recurrent hip luxations. The system consists of a metal casing with a highly polished internal surface and a movable polyethylene inlay, inside which a press-fitted prosthesis head moves. This provides a greater range of motion with less abrasion and reduced risk of luxation. It was on the basis of this principle that the BiMobile Acetabular Cup System came about.
The development of the bimobile acetabular cup system drew on many years of experience with successful implant systems and fixation concepts plus state-of-the-art material and coating technologies. The result is the versatile LINK BiMobile Acetabular Cup System.
The cementless LINK BiMobile Acetabular Cup is available with a TiCaP double coating. The TiCaP double coating combines the properties of a highly porous layer of pure titanium for primary fixation and an osteoconductive calcium phosphate coating, which together provide optimal primary and secondary implant stability. A supportive macrostructure on the cup equator increases the primary stability.
Highly wear-resistant cup
The Link BiMobile Dual Mobility System is available in two versions, either cemented or cementless. The metal casings in both versions are fabricated from biocompatible, sturdy EndoDur CoCrMo material. The inner surface is highly polished in order to keep abrasion to a minimum.
