November 2, 2015 — OrthoGrid Systems announced the release of the new HipGrid Drone intraoperative radiographic alignment system for both anterior and posterior approach total hip replacement (THR). The system is the second generation of the company’s HipGrid technology that addresses proper implant positioning and leg length inequality.

HipGrid Drone is a reusable, non-sterile device, specifically conceived to combine improvements in ease of use and surgical technique reproducibility for the surgical team. In addition, it is offered through an innovative pricing model that maximizes cost reduction opportunities by incentivizing administrative expense reductions.

Since its inception, OrthoGrid has succeeded in revealing data hidden within an intraoperative X-ray that cannot be accurately seen with the naked eye. Prior to the HipGrid technology, surgeons around the world were without a good option to access all of the data available via an intraoperative X-ray.  

OrthoGrid will officially introduce the HipGrid Drone during the American Academy of Hip and Knee Surgeon (AAHKS) meeting in Dallas, Nov. 5-8. It is scheduled for full commercial release in the fourth quarter of 2015.
