Frost & Sullivan Honors ConforMIS for Its Contribution to Personalized Care Through its Customized Implant Development Technologies
Date:8/18/2008

PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the personalized healthcare market, Frost & Sullivan presents ConforMIS with the 2008 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Medical Device Healthcare Innovation. This recognition is in support of the company's unique commitment to delivering orthopedic implants that precisely fit each individual unlike traditional implants that require surgeons to shape patients' bones to fit standardized implants.

"The field of orthopedic implants is poised to transition towards personalized implants since off-the-shelf implant designs cannot accommodate all of the anatomic variations present across patients," explains Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Archana Swathy. "ConforMIS is a pioneer, fueling this transition through the company's revolutionary technology platforms -- the iFit(TM) technology and iJig(TM) instrumentation."

While traditional orthopedic implants have undergone a long continuum of scaled developments to reach a certain level of sophistication, ConforMIS aims to revolutionize the very approach to implants through customization. Surgeries involving ConforMIS implants are minimally invasive, removing minimal bone and cartilage. This radical patient-specific initiative employs the proprietary "image-to-implant" technology platforms. The iFit technology transforms CT and MR imaging data into implants that are made to precisely fit the topography of the damaged joint. The same imaging data is utilized to create the iJig instrumentation, which are disposable patient-specific cutting and placement guides that help simplify the surgical process and improve surgical outcomes and efficiency.

The image-to-implant technology platforms ensure optimal implant fit and alignment, while offering complete coverage of weight-bearing surfaces. ConforMIS implants also offer thorough coverage of the cortical rim on the tibia, which minimizes the risk of subsidence and loosening,
