Okani Medical Developing All-Polymer Knee Implant

By Julie A. Vetalice

Okani Medical Technology has developed ORGKnee™, an all-polymer knee implant based on Zeniva® PEEK material from Solvay.

The implant is slated to enter pre-clinical trials in 2Q18, to be followed by standard trials in China by the end of 3Q18. Product launch is planned for 2020.

The ORGKnee is designed to offer a longer implant life at a lower cost than traditional metal systems. Study findings have indicated that the device exhibited 50% less wear vs. a metal implant, measured by material loss over 3MM cycles.
