2. The system can be used with a wide range of hemispherical cup implants on the market.

 

3. The system helps surgeons place a visual alignment pin with an orientation corresponding to the intended orientation of the cup implant.

5. Materialise provides 3D software and sophisticated 3D printing solutions.
