Medical technology firm ConforMIS has introduced a new iTotal CR (cruciate-retaining) total knee replacement implant system.


The new system has been developed to improve procedural efficiency by further decreasing the number of intraoperative steps required during a knee replacement surgery.

ConforMIS CEO Dr Philipp Lang said: "The latest generation iTotal again demonstrates our ability to respond to the needs of our customers with better solutions for patients, surgeons and hospitals.

"Our scalable business model differentiates our company and allows us the agility and speed to bring new technology to patients rapidly."

ConforMIS has designed the individually sized and shaped total knee replacement product to suit each patient’s unique anatomy.

According to the company, the system demonstrated better patient satisfaction, greater stability and more natural kinematics compared to traditional and off-the-shelf knee implants, in clinical systems.

The company will exhibit the new system at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) meeting in Las Vegas, which is being held from 25 to 27 March.

ConforMIS, through using its iFit Image-to-Implant technology platform, develops and markets joint replacement implants.
