Made in France

French orthopedics since 1971

The ASTON-SEM group has the requirement to manufacture on French territory.

The design and manufacture are entirely made in France.

This allows us optimal traceability of materials and processes, equipment monitoring, but also responsiveness and cost control.



Improve products and design new devices, two major axes in research and development that keep the company in the race for performance for years.

Our R&D policy is at the heart of the group’s strategy: reversed shoulder prosthesis, minimally invasive hip prostheses, cemented double mobility cup, implantable medical textile, biodegradable closure cap … the company counts more than 80 patents filed.


The resources and skills pooling of the two companies makes it possible to cope with the drastic regulation and high costs of regulatory markings. The Group relies on a precise quality management that meets the requirements.

The group is ISO13485 certified.

Sterile medical devices are packaged in clean rooms meeting the requirements of NF EN ISO 14644standard.

The sterilization of medical devices is obtained by the application of the sterilization method by gamma irradiation in accordance with NF EN ISO 11137 standard.

The components of the surgical cements are manufactured by aseptic treatment according to the requirements of the NF EN ISO 13408 standard.
