An Australian-owned medical technology company and a global manufacturer and supplier of orthopaedic implants have just entered into an exclusive partnership for their total hip replacement products in Australia and New Zealand.

The Australian-based Optimized Ortho and UK-founded Corin launched their innovative delivery platform for hip replacement products at the Australian Orthopaedic Association’s Annual Scientific Meeting in Darwin yesterday (October 7, 2013).

Optimized Ortho – a global leader in dynamic simulation technology and its use in optimising patient outcomes – will now for the first time, offer surgeons and patients alike world-leading pre-operative, dynamic, functional and tailored information.

This will provide the opportunity for the orthopaedic surgeon to customise implant positions for patients based on individual biomechanics.
