Artelon in the Shoulder
The shoulder is the body’s most dynamic joint, boasting flexibility and range of motion not found anywhere else in the body. Mechanically, this is achieved by a shallow socket which does not constrain motion until the extreme limits of range. However, this lack of bony restraint requires the surrounding tendons and ligaments to manage tremendous amounts of stress in order to maintain proper motion and avoid dislocation. Because of this, the dynamic nature of Artelon’s technology has made it a novel solution for enhancing strength without constraining motion in the shoulder.
