LimaCorporate’s Discovery Elbow system is designed to reproduce a natural elbow anatomy and restore elbow mechanics.
It features spherical condyles on the hinge to allow for increased articular surface contact. The hinge laxity allows a proper anatomical varus/valgus movement in the elbow. The spherical condyles can be assembled in the joint from a posterior approach.
