10 years ARTIQO – Out of the niche with the A2® shaft

Dear ladies and gentlemen, dear customers and interested parties,

The A2® short socket system has been an important part of the company’s development since it was founded 10 years ago. A risky venture, because short stems were still in the supply niche for younger patients at that time. Ulrich Bücken, Managing Director of ARTIQO GmbH, describes in an interview the considerations that led to the development of the A2® system, why he believes in the future of the short socket as a standard fitting and how the success proves him right.

Yours, Ulrich Bücken

You once said that the ARTIQO company was born out of the conviction that a company was needed that approached well-known endoprosthetic topics differently. Did you mean the A2 short shaft system?

Ulrich Bücken: Our ARTIQO mission statement is “Anatomy as a standard”. For us, this is not an empty phrase, but a living tradition, if one can speak of tradition after 10 years. ARTIQO’s justification has never been “me too”, but rather a consistently anatomical approach to endoprosthetic problems.
