CONTINUING THE AEQUALIS™ LEGACY Tornier first introduced the key principles for anatomic shoulder reconstruction with the launch of the Aequalis shoulder system for over two decades. The Aequalis system was born out of a landmark study of the proximal humerus performed by Gilles Walch, M.D. and Prof. Pascal Boileau, which detailed four anatomic variables: version, inclination, medial offset and posterior offset. Building upon this legacy and remaining true to its principles, the Aequalis Ascend™ Flex has given rise to the next generation of anatomic implant design. Derived from an extensive 3 dimensional CT database of humeral specimens, the Aequalis Ascend Flex prosthesis design mimics the internal humeral geometry and is the first humeral stem that is truly anatomic from the inside out.
