Intraoperatively, ExactechGPS provides visibility into the glenoid vault in real time and allows for consistent, accurate glenoid placement.1
A user-friendly preoperative planning application, the Equinoxe® Planning App, enables implant selection and placement prior to surgery. An ExactechGPS operative plan can be prepared within days after receiving patient CT scan.
In a recent cadaver study, ExactechGPS was able to bring the version, inclination and implant placement to within 2 degrees and 2mm of the planned implant placement – an 8 degree improvement over standard instrumentation and a 4 degree improvement over patient-specific instrumentation.2,3

In addition, ExactechGPS provides a real-time view of retroversion and inclination, reaming and drilling depth, screw placement and the ability to adjust surgical plan intraoperatively, offering surgeons more flexibility.
