“AAOS brings together the sharpest minds in the field, and it’s the perfect opportunity to discuss how we can move forward together,” said Brian K. Hutchison, chairman and CEO of Catalyst. “We’re excited to share our latest innovations, including the Archer R1 system and Archer 3D Targeting, with orthopedic surgeons across the nation.”

Catalyst arrives at AAOS at a time of significant momentum for the company. In March, the company received FDA 510(k) clearance for the Archer R1 system and kicked off a limited user release in Q2 2021, sharing updates from the first surgeries in May. A commercial launch is planned for later this year. Catalyst also recently announced the introduction of Archer 3D Targeting imaging software to its offerings. With its Archer suite of shoulder systems, Catalyst supports the two fastest-growing segments of the shoulder arthroplasty market – stemless anatomic and reverse TSA – as well as preoperative planning.

  • The Archer CSR Total Shoulder System is an anatomic stemless total shoulder arthroplasty solution that combines innovative components and unique instrumentation to bring about a precise, accurate restoration of the shoulder. It features a stemless, ellipsoid humeral component that is engineered to accurately replace the elliptical shape of the patient’s native non-spherical ​humeral head.
  • The Archer R1 Reverse Shoulder System is a single-tray arthroplasty system that was engineered to combine the most beneficial and evidence-based attributes of reverse shoulder arthroplasty design. The system offers surgeon-targeted implant positioning, a streamlined and versatile system, and bone sparing implants.
  • Archer 3D Targeting is imaging software designed to support preoperative planning for shoulder arthroplasty. It uses two-dimensional images, such as an MRI of CT scan, to create a 3D interactive model and provide a surgical plan in advance of the Catalyst procedure.
