MAX Acetabular Inserts Benefits

Hip Product Group

MAX underwent extensive laboratory evaluations, including wear simulator testing.


Excellent wear properties

MAX demonstrated 95% less wear than conventional polyethylene. [1]

Stability with large diameter heads

Larger diameter heads have been shown to lead to improved range of motion and lower dislocation rates. [2,3,4,5] MAX acetabular inserts are available for use with heads up to 40mm in diameter.
