Intellijoint Surgical released the Intellijoint KNEE™ surgeon-controlled navigation solution that provides real-time positional measurements of the cutting guides during total knee arthroplasty.
Specifically, Intellijoint KNEE provides quantitative measurements of varus/valgus, flexion and slope angles, as well as resection depth to align cutting guides in the sagittal and coronal planes. The imageless, open platform system allows surgeons to use any implant vendor, and supports a femur- or tibia-first workflow with no learning curve for registration.
Intellijoint KNEE is delivered using the Intellijoint Navigation System, a mini-optical camera and a single tray of instruments.
CEO Armen Bakirtzian said, “Our company was created in 2010 out of a need for more accurate, accessible navigation for total hip replacements. Since releasing our flagship product - Intellijoint HIP® - in 2016 and completing over 15,000 total hip replacements, we heard from our customers the desire for the same user experience with knee navigation. We are pleased to respond to the market requests through the release of Intellijoint KNEE using the same design principles: fast, easy and affordable.”
