Suffering from knee pain?

This innovative total knee implant was designed to deliver maximum functional stability with the goal of increasing TKA patient satisfaction during activities of daily living and decreasing post-operative knee pain. Design features enabled enhanced stability, replicates natural lateralised patellar tracking, and accommodates patient-specific kinematics.

What is osteoarthritis?

The anterior approach is the only approach that follows both an intermuscular and internervous path, potentially reducing the risk of damage to periarticular structures, including muscles, tendons, vessels and nerves. Potentially delivering patient-valued early outcomes such as faster mobilisation, reduced pain and shorter hospitalisation, this approach is supported by a full system of implants, instruments and training protocols.
