ADAPTABLE® is the first fully-sterile, surgeon-controlled limb and retractor holder designed for a safe total hip arthroplasty, highly efficient knee surgery, and convenient patient positioning in upper extremity arthroplasty and sports medicine procedures. The fully-mechanical carbon fiber surgical arm works seamlessly with any standard operating table and has the ability to reduce the number of assistants in the operating room. ADAPTABLE is easy to set up, transport, and store.

ADAPTABLE is a game-changing device for DAA THA. It empowers surgeons to reduce the number of staff intra-operatively and increase the overall OR economy. Its versatility as both a retractor and leg holder, as well as its promise for future indications, are a much needed innovative and modern solution to patient care.

It’s critical to have the right tools to perform surgery and since the ADAPTABLE arm is a fraction of the size and weight of a specialty table, it was easily transported, helped with operating room efficiencies and produced more effective surgeries.

ADAPTABLE has transformed DAA THA for us and we’re anticipating the same with TKA. “We’ve reduced our OR staff needs, reduced costs, and increased the efficiency of our practice. It’s what we need as we move to more outpatient and ASC procedures.
