The PURIST enables all essential leg movements for anterior THR in a condensed and efficient manner. It is built to perform independent DA THR movements on a graduated scale - and its enhanced design allows the surgeon to control traction and rotation intra-operatively with precision and without help from non-sterile personnel.
Its quick setup, staff-friendly operation, and small footprint make the PURIST popular with busy OR teams.
Combine the PURIST with any standard OR table to build a superior leg positioning system.
Measurable, Reproducible positioning
Gross and Fine Traction measurable in mm on the same scale - up to 130mm
Rotation up to 180 degrees w/ adduction
Adduction / Abduction up to 40 degrees
Full extension available.
*Patented design releases traction during leg extension and automatically restores traction at 0 degrees extension.
Fast Track Hybrid System provides simultaneous traction and rotation functionality, which simplifies dislocating and reducing the hip.
Quick disconnects on both the operative and non-operative traction boots allow for quick patient setup and simple range-of-motion testing.
“The next-generation leg positioning device is designed to boost efficiency and surgeon control throughout the anterior THR procedure. The PURIST does everything I need it to do for my anterior hip surgeries and it does it in a very elegant and efficient way.”
Stefan Kreuzer, MD (Designing Surgeon and Founder of IOT) INOV8 Orthopedics Houston, TX USA
“In our test of the PURIST Leg Positioning System, we like its compact design that is compatible with any OR table and completely free standing. The PURIST is easy to operate by an OR nurse after a short 2 minute instruction. The device achieves all necessary leg positions easily and reproducibly.”

“The PURIST is a dynamic, streamlined traction device that gives the user positive usable feedback while being simple and easy to use.”

"I have been using the PURIST leg positioning system for the past few years at both hospitals in our community. I routinely do my total hips DA, and the PURIST is my preferred means of positioning. Use of the PURIST is quick and easy, and it has a very small footprint which makes for expeditious room set-up and turnover. I have used other positioning devices, including having extensive experience with the ARCH system. After using the PURIST, I am spoiled. It is simple, reliable, and in my opinion, indispensable for efficient OR work flow."
David R. Dietrich, MD Northwest Medical Center, Oro Valley Hospital Tucson, AZ USA
“In my test of the PURIST Leg Positioning System, I found the PURIST to be an efficient and reliable leg positioning device that offers good femoral access. Compared to other systems I know, the PURIST is easy to setup, easy and safer to use.”
