It is used to treat primary osteoarthritis, post-traumatic osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, tumors and salvage of Darrach, Bowers, and Sauve-Kapandji.

- Stability is achieved by means of a simple soft tissue repair which is combined with a reconstruction of the triangular fibro-cartilage complex. (TFCC)
- Allows a free range of flexion, extension, ulnar deviation and radial deviation at the ulnocarpal joint.
- Different sized stems and heads.
