Balanced By Design
LimaCorporate is a true pioneer in the modularity field: SMR has been the first to address multiple indications of shoulder replacement with a unique modular system, and its options keeps evolving towards the future, extending indications and improving outcomes.
SMR can provide multiple fixation strategies -cement, press-fit, TT bone ingrowth both on humerus and on glenoid side and they are all proved to be reliable.
Proven results make SMR having one of the widest clinical heritage among all the shoulder replacements worldwide.

SMR Reverse The design of SMR Reverse is to be used with both cemented and uncemented stems. It features dedicated metaphyseal components to support elective and trauma surgery. Ø 36mm CoCr glenosphere (concentric or with 4mm eccentricity) can be balanced with several thicknesses of reverse liners. Fixation into glenoid is ensured by LimaCorporate’s Metal Back which has been widely verified.
