Discovery Elbow System
LimaCorporate’s Discovery Elbow System is designed to reproduce anatomy and restore an elbow’s mechanics.
Exclusive Bearing Design
The Discovery spherical hinge reduces wear by increasing the articular surface contact area between the humeral and ulnar components.
Enhanced Ulnar Positioning
The 23-degree anterior neck angle of Discovery stem allows for anatomic axis of motion.
Anatomical Humeral Stem
The Bowed stem reproduces an elbow’s anatomy through 5-degree lateral offset and 5-degree internal rotation.
