OrthAlign, Inc., a privately held U.S. based medical device company, debuted its KneeAlign® technology today in the United Kingdom at the London Knee Meeting.
KneeAlign provides both tibial and femoral navigation in a simple, palm-sized, single-use device and is compatible with all implant systems. It is highly accurate for overall mechanical, tibial, and femoral component alignment in TKA, comparing favorably to large-console Computer Assisted Surgery (CAS) systems. KneeAlign has been used in over 18,000 cases, worldwide.
Edwin P. Su, MD (Hospital for Special Surgery, New York, NY), who presented OrthAlign’s TKA technology from podium at the London Knee Meeting, shared, “KneeAlign is fast, simple, and easy to use. I believe OrthAlign’s handheld precision alignment technology helps bring all the good of navigation into the reach of many surgeons, providing precision and real-time data without the added complexity and exorbitant cost of computer assisted surgery systems or patient cutting blocks. It’s hard to imagine life in the OR now, without it. I think surgeons here in the UK will have the same experience”.
