The tension in the soft tissues, a key factor in the success of of the surgery.
Surgeons replace body joints without really knowing how the implant will affect the function of the soft tissues (muscle, tendon and ligament), since it’s impossible to measure these changes with current technologies.
To restore native soft tissue tension, they use subjective and feeling-based assessments. Surgeons are forced to work with minimal information on diseased anatomy to try to restore the native tension of the joint.
“The biggest fear of the surgeon is instability of the bearing surface if they get the wrong tension”
Dr. Moreno Morelli
The Statera Medical approach.
Overcome the subjectivity of soft tissue balance.
Smart and adjustable implants.
Monitoring over time.
In order to prevent complications related to soft tissue tensioning, Statera has developed a smart implant providing real-time anatomical data along with a patient-specific adjustment capability, allowing surgeons to objectively balance the artificial joint and set soft tissue tension using empirical data after the joint is fully closed, muscles are activated, and the diseased anatomy corrected.
Adaptability to a wide array of pathology.
Multiple cup sizes
Managing the implant fit can require up to 30 different components combinations, which required a large amount of trials.
Infinite adjustment in a range of 0 mm to 6 mm to find the optimal implant fit in multiple shoulder pathology.
Management of soft tissue tension.
The surgeon use subjective and feeling-based assessments to try to restore native soft tissue tension, without having information on how the implant will affect the function of the soft tissues.
The surgeons have the ability to capture real-time information about soft tissue tension and implant function, as well as to find the specific implant fit during the surgery.
In case of complications.
45 minutes to up to 1:30 of surgery
An invasive revision surgery is needed. Full opening of the joint and shoulder dislocation in order to be able to identify the problem.
10 to 20 minutes of surgery
With a minimally invasive fashion with only two small incisions (~5mm), the surgeon is able to make adjustments to the implant.
