Stryker’s Foot and Ankle business unit announced that it is launching its Hoffman LRF Hexapod hardware and online application for deformity correction.

The Hoffmann LFR Hexapod uses mathematical algorithms to calculate solutions to correct deformities.

“Stryker’s Hoffman LRF Hexapod and its innovative software is a step forward for surgeons and patients involved with complex deformity correction and limb reconstruction procedures,” said John Sontich, chief of orthopedic trauma at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center. “I am looking forward to using these new technologies to help enhance the patient experience from the first consultation to the end of someone’s treatment.”

Patient X-rays can be uploaded into the Hoffman LRF Hexapod software which can begin to calculate the best treatment solution for the specific patient based on the surgeon’s manual inputs into the software. The hardware also features additional flexibility of strut offsetting that will allow the user to relocate the struts to a more optimal position. The whole system is also designed to match today’s biological repair and reconstruction methods.

“Our team is excited to showcase the benefits of the Hoffman LRF platform and its intuitive software at AOFAS,” said Tom Popeck, VP and general manager of Stryker’s Foot and Ankle business unit. “We believe this modern deformity correction platform helps streamline the surgical planning process and demonstrates our dedication to moving technology forward with our surgeons and patients best interest in mind.”
