Smith & Nephew launches natural-motion knee replacement at AAOS annual meeting
Date:3/19/2013

/p>

"Unlike implants that create unnatural motion with a symmetric, circular design, or with a rotating platform, the JOURNEY II BCS knee accommodates the swing-and-rotate of the knee with the same engineering principles the body naturally uses," explains Steven Haas , MD, Chief of the Knee Service at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.  "As a result, the muscles and ligaments around the new joint don't have to work harder because the implant's natural shape and resulting motion allow these soft tissues to move in familiar ways. This leads to higher patient satisfaction scores, more mechanical efficiency of the muscle, and a more natural feeling while walking or bending in the months after their procedure."

The JOURNEY II BCS knee is made from Smith & Nephew's VERILAST™ Technology.  The combination of two wear reducing materials – proprietary OXINIUM™ alloy and a highly cross-linked plastic liner, VERILAST Technology generates a significant reduction in implant wear compared to traditional bearing couples on the market.  On traditional plastic liners, OXINIUM material is 4,900 times more abrasion resistant than cobalt chrome and reduces knee replacement wear on traditional liners by up to 85-percent compared to cobalt chrome components.[i]
