Orthopedic medtech titan, Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. has announced the strategic acquisition of Clinical Graphics, B.V., which specializes in 3D range-of-motion simulation technology to inform treatment decisions for common hip conditions requiring early intervention.

Background

Clinical Graphics is a recognized pioneer in the field of 3D interactive range-of-motion simulation reports for common hip conditions such as femoroacetabular impingement and dysplasia, and physicians rely on its technology to characterize the physiology of a patient’s pain and direct treatment approaches.
