A leading solution for surgical access to the anterior hip, the ARCH Leg Positioning System (also known as the ARCH table) 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.
The ARCH can improve surgical accuracy, repeatability, and efficiency.
Wide variety of positioning options
The rotating arc-shaped leg positioning track provides many options when positioning the operative leg.

Setup for femoral fractures
The ARCH can be used for femoral fractures by turning the arc-shaped track sideways with both traction boots facing upward.
“I am using an ARCH and a Hana table at the hospital and an ARCH at the surgical center. I consistently achieve better femoral exposure with the ARCH using the edge of the OR table levering up the femur vs using a hook. The ARCH offers more reproducible positioning of the limb; it is more cost effective than the Hana table and certainly easier to set up.”

“We had three hips done by 2pm. Having a slight delay on the fourth as the patient had to go to X-ray. Having the two Arch Tables has saved us two hours.”

“We have been using two ARCH tables for several years now with great success. We have performed over 500 DAA's of several different brand hips in this time. In our experience, because of its sturdy design, the ARCH system proved to be very reliable.”

“I have been using both Hana tables as well as ARCH Leg Positioning Systems for several years now. Both systems work well in my experience. We decided to purchase the new ARCH Leg Positioning System for our ASC because of its space saving footprint and easy handling.”

“I prefer the ARCH to the Hana/ProFix table because it provides precise and graduated positioning. I can always return to any previous position and know exactly where I am (degrees of rotation, flexion/extension, adduction, traction).”
Steven L. Myerthall, MD The CORE Institute Gilbert, AZ USA
“The ARCH provides controlled and repeatable movement of the leg. Femoral elevation is achieved automatically by the counter lever effect of the edge of the table when dropping the leg during femoral preparation.”
