Division: Knee Reconstruction
Category: Primary Knees
The ATTUNE® Primary Total Knee System is designed with the goal of addressing the clinical needs of patients, surgeons, and hospital providers around the world. Extensive research and science is included in the design to help improve functional outcomes for patients, performance for surgeons, and efficiency for providers. The ATTUNE Knee is an innovative, comprehensive, integrated knee system.
The ATTUNE Knee is one of the largest research and development projects in the history of DePuy Synthes Joint Reconstruction and combines the latest in design, kinematics, engineering and materials to deliver stability and motion.
Total knee arthroplasty is intended to provide increased patient mobility and reduced pain by replacing the damaged knee joint articulation in patients where there is evidence of sufficient sound bone to seat and support the components. Total knee replacement may be considered for younger patients if, in the opinion of the surgeon, an unequivocal indication for total knee replacement outweighs the risks associated with the age of the patient, and if limited demands regarding activity and knee joint loading can be assured. This includes severely crippled patients with multiple joint involvement for whom a gain in knee mobility may lead to an expectation of significant improvement in the quality of their lives.
The ATTUNE Knee features several key proprietary technologies, exclusive to DePuy Synthes Joint Reconstruction: The ATTUNE Primary Total Knee System is designed to deliver a high level of stability and motion.
|ATTUNE GRADIUS™ Curve||The patented ATTUNE GRADIUS™ Curve is the gradually reducing femoral radius designed to provide a smooth transition from stability to rotational freedom through a patient's range of motion.|
|GLIDERIGHT™ Articulation||The GLIDERIGHT™ Articulation encompasses a trochlear groove designed to accommodate patient variation and soft tissue interaction, and patella components designed to optimize patella tracking while maintaining bone coverage.|
|SOFCAM™ Contact||The proprietary s-curve of the SOFCAM™ Contact is designed to provide a smooth engagement for gradual femoral rollback and stability in flexion, while reducing stresses transferred to the tibial spine.|
|LOGICLOCK™ Tibial Base||The LOGICLOCK™ Tibial Base has a patented central locking design that provides the architecture for the system that optimizes kinematics, while reducing backside micromotion to the lowest reported levels in the industry.1|
|INTUITION™ Instruments||The INTUITION™ Instrumentation combines the surgical process with intuitive and efficient instruments to allow the surgeon to balance the soft tissue and precisely control the implant position and fit for each patient.|
