  • G7 Efficient Wave Tray simplifies work flow by providing a customizable instrument tray designed for fast sterilization and dry times

Performance.

The G7 Acetabular System, unites the latest innovations in advanced bearing materials and biological fixation to offer surgeons and hospitals the ability to meet the various needs of today’s patient population.

  • E1® Antioxidant Infused Technology-Provides oxidative stability, via Vitamin E, while maintaining strength and wear resistance.
  • ArComXL® Highly Crosslinked Polyethylene-Created via a solid state deformation process to obtain optimal wear resistance without sacrificing mechanical strength or increasing oxidation levels.
  • OsseoTi® Porous Metal Technology-Created via a proprietary manufacturing process, OsseoTi material directly mimics the architecture of human cancellous bone, enabling surgeons to benefit from a highly porous material without compromising head-to-shell ratio.
  • PPS® Porous Plasma Spray Coating-Designed to encourage biologic fixation between implant and bone, maintains the implant’s inherent fatigue strength and is designed to help prevent micromotion.

The G7® Acetabular System builds upon Zimmer Biomet’s rich history of clinically successful acetabular products. The clinical experience of the RingLoc®, Exceed™* and Avantage™* Acetabular Systems, E1® Antioxidant Infused Technology and ArComXL® polyethylene provide the foundation for the development of the G7 Acetabular System.
