Leg Positioning System™
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.
Independent traction, rotation, extension, and adduction controls allow precise positioning of the operative leg and femur.
Constant Traction Design
The patented arc-shaped track aligns with the rotational center of the hip joint, allowing the operative leg to be moved anywhere within the hemisphere shown – without altering traction.
Incremental Extension Control
Each sliding carriage position adds an additional 5° of leg extension, allowing the surgeon to carefully release the necessary soft tissues before fully extending the leg all the way down to the floor.
Durable and Robust
The stainless steal construction and fixed, arc-shaped track firmly hold the operative leg in position for the most demanding positioning requirements.
Improved OR Efficiency
Transform your standard OR table into a dedicated orthopedic positioning system for anterior hip replacements and femoral fracture work.
Dr. Stefan Kreuzer (Houston, TX) describes how he uses the ARCH to expose the femur during anterior hip replacement.
