Griptite™ Technology the Best of Both Worlds
- The Global Cup™ is a cementless, press-fit, primary acetabular cup system featuring a hemispherical outer profile below the equator. It incorporates a tapered profile below the equator and the top face, and features a morse taper locking mechanism for both the Biolox® delta ceramic and Everlong™ polyethylene liners.
- The Global Cup™ is available in a 3 hole and also in a multi hole option and offers the surgeon the choice of two bearing surfaces, metal on highly crosslinked Everlong™ polyethylene or Biolox® delta ceramic on ceramic.
- Global Orthopaedic Technology’s Griptite™ coating offers the surgeon the best of both worlds, combining well proven biomaterials, while balancing coefficient of friction with optimal porosity.
What is Griptite™?
Griptite™ is a pure titanium macro surface structure comprised of a 3 dimensional dual layer of sintered asymmetrical HA coated shards. The asymmetrical Ti shards along with the sintering process create an optimal scratch fit for superior initial stability. By combining the porous Ti shard network and outer HA coating, Griptite™ endeavours to reduce the critical period between loss of interface fit and the establishment of permanent biological fixation.
