OrthAlign Milestone: 200,000 Navigated Joint Replacements

OrthAlign announced a clinical milestone of 200,000 OrthAlign-assisted joint replacement surgeries worldwide. Indicated for total knee, partial knee and total hip replacement, OrthAlign's intuitive, handheld navigation technologies provide an accurate, cost-effective tool ideal for both the hospital and ASC environments.

OrthAlign delivers accurate, individualized alignment to any patient with a single-use, handheld smart tool that can be used across implant platforms and surgical philosophies. The user-friendly design and interface provide streamlined workflows to reduce OR times and support multiple ORs concurrently without the investment, equipment, or pre-operative imaging required by many computer-assisted surgical systems. The technology is optimized for the ASC with only one instrument tray, one navigation unit for all applications, and no storage requirements or service plans.

A steady cadence of updates and product launches have supported the exponential adoption and growth of OrthAlign technology. KneeAlign®, the company's flagship application, provides tibial and femoral intra-operative navigation for total knee arthroplasty. UniAlign®, launched in early 2017, leveraged the clinical success of KneeAlign, and allows for a seamless transition between partial and total knee replacement. In 2018, HipAlign® became commercially available and currently supports real time abduction and anteversion measurements of the acetabular cup and assess intra-operative changes in leg length and offset for both lateral or supine based approaches.
