Burlington, MA based ConforMIS Inc. has announced that their iUni G2 implant was given CE Mark certification, clearing it for sale in Europe. The G2 is an updated version of the iUni, which was previously covered here at Medgadget. The patient-specific device is designed using a CT scan of the patient’s knee, which allows it to conform to the femoral surface and minimize wear.
From the product page:
The bone and cartilage preserving features of the iUni may be especially valuable for young and active patients who are considered too early for traditional knee replacement, but who suffer from arthritis. The iUni allows the patient to preserve their joint for future surgery options, while receiving an implant with the potential to prevent or delay the need for a more invasive surgery.
