The Ascension NuGrip CMC implant is designed to relieve pain and restore range of motion in the first carpometacarpal (thumb) joint of patients with arthritis.

The Ascension NuGrip CMC implant made of PyroCarbon is a single component which minimises bone resections and preserves the trapezium. The stem is anatomically designed for a natural press fit within the intramedullary canal without the need for cement. The specifically designed stem and collar enhance stability and maintain the anatomys joint space. The spherical head has an extended circumference which provides the maximum opportunity for range of motion within the trapezium. The instrumentation is streamlined and color-coded for simplified use. The device offers eight sizing options to find the perfect fit for the patients anatomy.

  • Trapezium preserving
