The ATTUNE® Knee System is a new state-of-the-art knee replacement system, designed to work in harmony with your knee muscles and ligaments. With the help of the ATTUNE Knee System, you can get back to living life even sooner. In a clinical study, physical therapists noted that ATTUNE Knee System patients had significantly greater range of motion than other knee replacement patients, both at two and six weeks post surgery.*
Preparing for and recovering from a knee replacement
Before total knee replacement, patients will usually undergo a pre-operative physiotherapy and weight loss program. After surgery, a post-operative exercise regimen helps them regain strength and stability.

The knee is a complicated set of tendons, muscles, ligaments and bones. Every aspect of ATTUNE Knee System has been shaped to work together with the knee joint and its muscles and ligaments.
The ATTUNE Knee System helps you maintain stability during activities like walking and going up and down stairs. It is designed to help you feel confident from your very first step. In a clinical study, physical therapists noted that ATTUNE Knee System patients required significantly less time than other knee replacement patients to meet the necessary criteria to leave the hospital.*
Every aspect of the ATTUNE Knee System is specially shaped for a full range of motion while optimizing stability:

Watch an animation illustrating the way the patented technologies of the ATTUNE Knee System work inside your body to help give you optimal stability and mobility.
To produce a knee replacement system that gives you more stability and a natural range of motion, we’ve developed innovative, patented technologies combining the latest in design, kinematics (the study of movement), engineering and materials.
Working in collaboration with independent scientists, universities, engineers and opinion leaders from all over the world, the ATTUNE Knee System is the result of the largest-ever research and development program from DePuy Synthes Joint Reconstruction.
New tests and methods were used during the development of the ATTUNE Knee System and every step of knee replacement design and knee replacement surgery was reviewed.
This research process helped create patented technologies that allow patients to experience advanced stability and freedom of movement.
This helps provide you smooth motion and stability as you do everyday activities like walking or going up and down stairs.
This innovation optimizes how your patella (knee cap) interacts with the rest of your knee to provide a smooth feeling in motion.
The ATTUNE Knee System uses an advanced polyethylene (plastic) material to act as a spacer that goes in between the tibia (shin bone) and femur (thigh bone) to replace the cartilage. This material has been extensively tested and shown to have excellent mechanical strength and resistance to wear, which can help it stand up to your activities after knee replacement.
If you have a chronic knee condition, we're here to help. Discover how to prepare for, and rehabilitate from, knee replacement surgery.
The performance of knee replacements depends on age, weight, activity level, and other factors. There are potential risks and recovery takes time. People with conditions limiting rehabilitation should not have this surgery. Only an orthopaedic surgeon can tell if knee replacement is right for you.
