The LINK BetaCup® System was designed especially for biologically young, active patients and represents a new generation of cementless press-fit acetabular cups.
The BetaCup® has an Equatorial Press-Fit for maximal primary stability. The special design of the metal shell, including high precision conical inner surfaces, ensures homogenous and uniform load transfer, thus averting or minimizing peak loads.
Metal Shell is made of Tilastan® Titanium Alloy
Optimal primary and secondary stability of the prosthesis is achieved by its TiCaP® osteo-inductive calcium phosphate film (CaP) on a highly porous surface.
Protective rim on shell prevents femoral components impinging with ceramic inserts thus preventing any damage to them.
BetaCup® offers the option of either ceramic or UHMWPE inserts.
The ceramic inserts are available in BIOLOX® delta, which, due to its significantly greater fracture resilience, offers twice the safety in comparison to conventional ceramic components. * BIOLOX delta is a product of CeramTec AG, Plochingen, Germany
The UHMWPE inserts are equipped with a press-fit anti-rotational stabilizer to avoid abrasion between the insert and metal shell due to micro-movement.
