Joint Preservation Wrist Implants

WristMotion Hemiarthroplasty & Total Arthroplasty Systems

Have you been told that you suffer from degenerative arthritis of the wrist or have you been diagnosed with SNAC & SLAC wrists? Did you know that traditional treatments, such as a wrist fusion, can limit range of motion and the ability to perform daily tasks? With the help of an orthopedic surgeon and products like our wrist implant systems, you can return to an active lifestyle.

The wrist is a complex joint with many small ball and socket joints that move against each other. When the wrist becomes arthritic or the cartilage is damaged, pain and function between the different bones can severely limit activity and grip strength. If surgery is required to repair your wrist, your surgeon may recommend a wrist implant to restore your joint.

Anika’s WristMotion® Hemiarthroplasty & Total Arthroplasty Systems can allow you to live an independent lifestyle by preserving the native anatomy of your joint and removing minimal bone. Serving as an alternative to wrist fusion, WristMotion hemiarthroplasty implant is the only implant designed to create a new, mobile wrist joint by matching the shapes and contours of the patients’ existing joint surfaces.

For advanced arthritis, the WristMotion Total Wrist Arthroplasty System replaces both sides of the wrist joint, the radial and carpal sides. It is designed to preserve motion and maximize carpal stability while allowing the patient to preserve the Dart Thrower’s Motion.

The WristMotion Total Wrist Arthroplasty System is intended to alleviate pain while restoring functionality and mobility for patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, or post-traumatic arthritis.
