360 KNEE SYSTEMS is a known innovator of software-enabled digital solutions that personalise total knee replacement surgery. Under the agreement, 360 KNEE SYSTEMS will be available with DePuy Synthes’ ATTUNE Knee System in both Australia and New Zealand.
The 360 KNEE SYSEMS platform empowers patients to participate in and personalise their own treatment plan before, during and after total knee replacement surgery. It features smart technologies such as wearable devices to help surgeons plan the treatment pathway with their patients. This includes mapping each patient’s kinematic (body motion) data and preparing a 3D model of the knee to create a virtual surgery plan unique to them. Post-surgery, the 360 KNEE SYSTEMS platform provides the patient with a personalised rehabilitation and monitoring program.
Managing Director of Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies in Australia & New Zealand, Sue Martin, said the company was excited about the ways digital health will help J&J redefine success is surgery and improve outcomes in addition to the company’s products and other solutions.
“Our agreement represents an exciting opportunity to provide an end-to-end digital solutions and surgical platform that brings the individual needs of patients right into the heart of decision making for their total knee replacement”, Ms Martin said.
The agreement will allow this technology to be used to provide further potential benefits for patients undergoing knee replacement surgery with the ATTUNE Knee, which is designed to work in harmony with a patient’s anatomy and deliver what they want from the procedure: stability in motion during daily activities.
To-date, the ATTUNE Knee has bene used for more than 650,000 knee replacements in 44 countries.
DePuy Synthes’ President of Global Joint Reconstruction, Tim Czartoski, said J&J Medical Devices has a proven track record in developing meaningful innovation, and he the company expects to be investing locally with 360 KNEE SYSTEMS.
“We are building a digital ecosystem where technologies are connected before, during and after surgery, in line with our aim to improve outcomes for patients as well as increase their overall satisfaction with their healthcare experience.
