ARCH Leg Positioning System


Assisting anterior access to the hip with precision control of position and traction.

A leading solution for surgical access to the anterior hip, the ARCH Leg Positioning System has been used in the US since 2006 to assist with direct anterior hip replacement and femoral fractures. The free-standing design allows quick set-up and easy C-arm access with any OR table. The system consists of a patented arch-shaped leg-positioning track with incremental angle and traction control. Incorporating the ARCH may improve procedure repeatability and efficiency, potentially eliminating the need for one surgical assistant. Combining the ARCH Leg Positioning System with other IOT products for opposite leg holding creates a complete advanced leg positioning solution.
