ConforMIS, Inc., a medical technology company that manufactures and sells joint replacement implants, received positive results from its iTotal CR study. The iTotal CR is a fully customized implant for use in total knee replacement, and the study found that 92% of patients were satisfied with the product in the year after receiving a knee replacement.
In developing, manufacturing, and selling joint replacement implants, ConforMIS uses its iFit Image-to-Implant technology, which allows for a customized implant specifically designed to fit an individual’s anatomy. The iTotal CR study included 300 patients in the United States, and is still ongoing. The interim study results were presented at the 2016 SICOT International Orthopaedic “Specialized Knee Surgery” Conference in Germany, which ran from June 30th to July 2nd.
The positive feedback is consistent with a previous study that showed that patients noted significantly higher satisfaction with the ConforMIS iTotal CR in their knee replacements, than with off-the-shelf implants. The positive results speak to the benefits of anatomically customized implants, and illustrate how ConforMIS’s products are making a positive and lasting impact in the joint replacement implant market.
