ADAPTABLE™ is the first fully sterile, surgeon-controlled leg and retractor holder designed for a safe Direct Anterior Approach (DAA) for Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA). The fully-mechanical, carbon fiber surgical arm works seamlessly with any standard operating table and has the ability to reduce the number of assistants in the operating room (OR). ADAPTABLE is easy to set-up, transport and store.

ADAPTABLE is a game-changing device for DAA THA. It empowers surgeons to reduce the number of staff intra-operatively and increase the overall OR economy. Its versatility as both a retractor and leg holder, as well as its promise for future indications, are a much needed innovative and modern solution to patient care.
