The Stryker Orthopaedics® UHR® Universal Head is a leader among bipolar component designs.
Released in 1979 and patented in 1980, the UHR® Universal Head introduced two important design concepts to the field of orthopaedics. The first was dynamic valgus, a neutral alignment of the head during component loading that minimized wear on the locking mechanism. The second was the development of a one-piece, positive locking mechanism that provided enhanced security against component disassembly. Both of these developments revolutionized bipolar designs.
