The ACTIS™ Total Hip System is the first DePuy Synthes Companies of Johnson & Johnson stem specifically designed to be utilized with tissue sparing approaches, such as the anterior approach, as well as traditional approaches. The implant and instrumentation are designed to balance ease-of-insertion and may potentially provide improved implant stability.1

|Medial Collar||The medial collar on the ACTIS Hip Stem provides greater primary stability compared to non-collared stem for immediate weight bearing and reduces potential of subsidence.1|
|Variable Triple-Tapered Geometry||The ACTIS Hip Stem is tapered in three separate planes to aid in the short and long-term stability of the stem.|
|DUOFIX® HA Coating||DUOFIX HA Coating combines POROCOAT® Porous Coating, which allows for biological fixation to bone, with the addition of a 35 micron layer of HA coating.2|
|Bone Preserving Philosophy||ACTIS Hybrid Broaches feature extraction and compaction broaching technology which allows for preservation of patient anatomy while ensuring adequate fit in the canal.|
