The DELTAMOTION® Hip System was the world’s first large diameter pre-assembled CoC bearing, utilising BIOLOX DELTA® ceramic and titanium alloy, to provide a novel solution for younger patients, particularly those with small acetabulae. This increase in femoral head-to-acetabular diameter sizing allows optimised head-to-cup ratio without compromising stability, while increasing range of motion, head engagement and wear 1 while reducing dislocation 2 of the replaced hip.
