Materialise NV has launched a shoulder planner for surgeons with the possibility to plan shoulder arthroplasty cases and order patient-specific shoulder guides, in collaboration with DePuy Synthes. The TRUMATCH® Personalized Solutions Shoulder System marks a further extension of Materialise’s longstanding collaboration with DePuy Synthes, who will distribute the solution in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
The TRUMATCH® Personalized Solutions Shoulder System will help orthopaedic surgeons prepare for shoulder arthroplasty surgery, specifically addressing Reverse Shoulder Arthroplasty (RSA) and Anatomic Total Shoulder Arthroplasty (TSA) operations. It offers surgeons an all-in-one, web-based platform that allows them to better plan and prepare for these operations as well as order patient-specific 3D-printed surgical guides.
The measurement, viewing and implant positioning features of the TRUMATCH® Personalized Solutions Shoulder System helps surgeons make better informed, clinical decisions, taking control of an important step for a more desired outcome. This increased pre-operative preparedness gives the surgeon and the team more confidence and control during surgery.
The TRUMATCH® Personalized Solutions Shoulder System also allows surgeons to order patient specific 3D printed shoulder guides within the same platform.
