The Attune knee system is a total knee reconstruction system that has a high level of stability and motion. It features technologies from DePuy Synthes to help patients regain full movement in their knees, according to the company. It uses Attune Gradius Curve to reduce femoral radius and give a smooth transition from stability to rotational freedom through a range of motion with the patient. It also uses GlideRight articulation to accommodate to a patient’s variation and soft tissue interaction while optimizing patella tracking and maintaining bone coverage. The total knee system also uses LogicLock tibial base as a central locking design that helps the architecture of the system optimize kinetics and reduce backside micromotions. Intuition instruments are also featured in the total knee system. The intuition instruments combine the surgical process with efficient instruments to help the surgeon balance soft tissue and control the implant position in patients.

How do you know your technology is disruptive enough to break conventional wisdom?

textadimage Stan Rowe knows a little something about bringing disruptive technology to market. The current Edwards Lifesciences CSO was in on the ground floor of two of medtech's most disruptive treatments, stents and transcatheter aortic valve replacement.

On December 12th, Rowe will sit down with MassDevice editor Brad Perriello for a long ranging discussion about the inside story on how these technologies came to market and what Rowe learned along the way.
