On the heels of the release of MyBone from Cerhum (CERamics for HUMans), a first of its kind patient specific 3D printed bone implant, the world of 3D printed implants is celebrating another major milestone, this time in the field of Personalized Orthopaedics.
With the goal of enabling surgeons to repair and reconstruct the human body by uniting 3D Printing,
biomaterials, biomechanics, and AI, medical device company restor3d has announced the successful implantation of the next generation Kinos Axiom® Total Ankle System featuring TIDAL Technology™.
The latter is designed to optimize bone in-growth and fixation for long-term implant stability. Combined with the biomechanics of the Kinos Axiom®, this proprietary bone-implant interface of the 3D printed tibial and talar implants maximize cortical bone contact to deliver functionality and longevity of the prosthesis.
“As an existing user, I was pleased to be the first surgeon to use the new 3D printed tibial implant for one of my patients. Key to implant survivorship, this system was effectively designed to optimize bony ingrowth. These advancements demonstrate restor3d’s dedication to putting patient outcomes first”, Keith Jacobson, DPM, FACFAS, of Advanced Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Specialists, a division of Orthopedic Centers of Colorado, comments.
“The release of the Kinos Axiom® Total Ankle System with TIDAL Technology™ is predicated on years of scientific research and engineering development. We are proud to deliver a data-driven implant system with market-disrupting innovation to address the clinical needs for patients receiving ankle arthroplasty. Additionally, the launch of r3id for mobile is a significant advancement of restor3d’s vision to deliver an enhanced surgical planning solution,” said Cambre Kelly, PhD, restor3d’s Chief Technology Officer. “The latest version of the r3id application facilitates a seamless collaboration among restor3d’s Design Engineering team, surgeons, clinical staff members, and sales agents.”
