Zimmer Trabecular Metal Technology. No other porous material so closely resembles the structure, function and physiology of trabecular bone. Trabecular Metal Material is a highly porous structure with a nano-textured strut architecture that creates an initial scratch fit and facilitates the long-term biologic attachment of orthopedic implants via bone ingrowth.

Trabecular Metal Material is the most advanced fixation surface available for orthopedic implants. Clinical use since 1997 demonstrates that this innovative technology provides excellent initial scratch fit and stable, long-term fixation. No other porous metal material so closely resembles the structure, function and physiology of cancellous bone.
