Balanced by Design
LimaCorporate is a true pioneer in the modularity field: SMR has been the first to address multiple indications of shoulder replacement with a unique modular system, and its options keeps evolving towards the future, extending indications and improving outcomes.
SMR can provide multiple fixation strategies -cement, press-fit, TT bone ingrowth both on humerus and on glenoid side and they are all proved to be reliable.
Proven results make SMR having one of the widest clinical heritage among all the shoulder replacements worldwide.
SMR System’s true modularity enables the orthopedic surgeon to retain the features and the technique of SMR System [4-7], with a dedicated metaphyseal component and no extra instrumentation needed in the OR.
