Motec® Wrist Prosthesis

The Motec® Wrist Joint Prosthesis has been designed with the objective to provide a strong, stable, mobile and pain free wrist while minimizing the risk of luxation, loosening and osteolysis.

Its ball-and-socket design and articulation allow 136°-160° range of motion (ROM) and prevent loosening of the osseointegrated implants by preventing transfer of rotational forces.

The overall clinical results achieved with the Motec Wrist Joint Prosthesis are very promising. In the end of 2016, more than 1.000 surgeries have been performed. The longest follow-up time is +15 years. Recent studies indicate a survival rate of approximately 80% at 10 years follow up for OA-patients(1).

The Motec® Wrist Joint Prosthesis is completely modular in its design to give the surgeon maximum flexibility in matching the anatomy of the patient


The Motec® Wrist Prosthesis is indicated as replacement of the wrist joint in cases with pain, malalignment or instability due to:

  • Rheumatoid
  • Arthritis
  • Traumatic arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Kienböck’s disease
  • Carpal collapse

The system may also be indicated after failed wrist surgery like four corner fusion, proximal row carpectomy, or arthrodesis.
