Project summary

Customised total knee replacement technology platform.

What is the issue?

Kico is currently bringing a customised total knee replacement technology platform to market. The platform has software and hardware components that provide orthopaedic surgeons and patients with dynamic, functional and patient specific solutions. It is primarily aimed at Australian and US markets.

What does the technology aim to do?

The existing software platform helps orthopaedic surgeons personalise the positioning of the knee implant hardware components. It has been effectively used more than 4000 times in Australia and the US and is playing an important role in the current international debate surrounding alignment strategy selection and patient specific optimisation.

The next step is to accelerate implant hardware developments. The critical differentiated feature of the 360KS hardware program is the mass customisation of the tibial insert component. This allows for optimisation of the articular response between the tibial and femoral components.

Surgeons will be empowered to customise the care regime for every patient with a focus on improving post-operative functional performance. This feature will be unique in the world and is heavily protected by a series of awarded patents.
