Study Results: DJO EMPOWR 3D Knee Reduces Patient Dissatisfaction

By Julie A. Vetalice

Results from a clinical study of DJO's "dual-pivot" EMPOWR 3D Knee indicate that the technology reduces patient dissatisfaction and improves function and activity levels.

The EMPOWR 3D Knee is designed to recreate the natural dual-pivot motion pattern of a healthy knee, throughout the entire range of motion. Clinical benefits identified in the study include:

  • A 50% reduction in patient dissatisfaction vs. a competitor's implant
  • Patients reporting that their "knee feels normal" 25% more often than with a competitive implant
  • Patients who are over 2x more active with the EMPOWR 3D Knee vs. a competitor's implant
