ODEP Pre-Entry Status for Custom Devices
We are delighted to announce that our Custom-Made Acetabular and Femoral Components have successfully been awarded Pre-Entry status by the Orthopaedic Data Evaluation Panel in the United Kingdom (ODEP).
Terence Smith, Managing Director of JointMedica commented “To my knowledge, we are the first and only orthopaedic device company with this accolade for Custom Made devices which is a tremendous achievement for us as a company.”
The Orthopaedic Data Evaluation Panel was set up to monitor NICE guidance on primary hip implants in 2002 and hip resurfacing in 2004. The Panel provides ongoing assessment of hip implants to benchmark both hip femoral stems and hip acetabular cups against the NICE guidance, providing a rating for implant survivorship and data submission quality. In 2014 the process was extended to include total knee prostheses. The ODEP rating is now a commonly used benchmark used not only in the UK but globally.
