The Zimmer Continuum Acetabular System comprises Trabecular Metal material and Zimmer advanced bearing options, notes the company's website. This product has a 0.98 friction coefficient, providing stability, decreased micromotion and minimised supplemental screw needs, and it has an 80 percent porosity that mimics bone and allows for more biologic ingrowth.

The M/L Taper with Kinectiv Technology comprises a modular stem that attaches to a wide range of neck options, allowing a surgeon to choose a neck that closely matches the patient's anatomy, states the company's website. The Fitmore Hip Stem allows surgeons to use smaller incisions to perform the surgery, and it comes in a curved design to conserve as much natural bone in the patient as possible.

Composed of Tantalum and Longevity cross-linked polyethylene, the Trabecular Metal Modular Acetabular Revision System comes in a wide range of shell and liner options, informs the company's website. To help prevent dislocation of the liner from the shell, this product also comes with a locking mechanism.
