KneeTaxy: Patient-Specific Total Knee Arthroplasty
The KneeTaxy solution is a complete solution of instruments for total knee arthroplasty, including an interactive surgical planning software dedicated to orthopaedic surgeons and patient-specific guides.
KneeTaxy Plan : Surgical Planning Software
Class Im Medical Device, CE-certified by LNE/GMED (CE 0459). It is not reimbursed by healthcare insurance organizations.
The KneeTaxy Plan surgical planning software allows the surgeon to plan implants position interactively on patient images in 2 dimensions and 3 dimensions. The 2D planning allows him to plan on images that he used to manipulate, as they simulate radiographs on which an implant is projected (these images look like postoperative radiographs).
The KneeTaxy Plan allows the surgeon to study his case more carefully and also to fully understand it.
Once the CT or MRI exam of the patient is performed, the surgeon collects the data, then load it in the surgical planning software. Then, he starts its planning according its pre-defined preferences (rotation references, initial resection heights, correction options, implant size options, etc.). When the planning is finished, the surgeon confirms the order of the patient-specific guides and the planning data are automatically sent to Orthotaxy that starts guides design when data are received.
KneeTaxy Guides : Patient-Specific Cutting Guides
Class IIa Medical Device, CE-certified by LNE/GMED (CE 0459). It is not reimbursed by healthcare insurance organizations.
The KneeTaxy Guides are designed through a dedicated software developed by Orthotaxy, from the received planning data. This dedicated software allows to design guides quickly, efficiently and accurately. These guides adapt univocally on the patient’s knee and allow to reproduce the preoperative planning performed by the surgeon.
The KneeTaxy Guides are manufactured by Selective Laser Sintering from a batch of biocompatible polyamide powder. These guides are sterilizable in autoclave.
The surgeon can also order corresponding knee patient-specific bone models.
