The APTIS DRUJ Prosthesis Total Joint Replacement
Wrist The APTIS DRUJ (Distal Radio-Ulnar Joint) total replacement is a revolutionary implant developed by Dr. Luis Scheker with the support of PPM’s engineering group. The Scheker DRUJ prosthesis is the only device that completely replaces all the functions of this joint.
Dr. Scheker came to PPI with a remarkable concept and a prototype that was not ready for the marketplace. After careful evaluation, we realized there was much to be done to prepare this implant to meet manufacturing, supply chain and regulatory compliance requirements. Our engineering team was excited and more than ready to meet this challenge. They utilized their in-depth engineering and manufacturing expertise to develop a functional process plan, inspection criteria and gauges. Ultimately, our group delivered solutions necessary to ensure the innovative implant was market ready on all fronts. Noteworthy highlights for the Aptis DRUJ:
- Manufactured from a Cobalt Chrome Billet.
