Signature Personalized Patient Care* with the Oxford Partial Knee

Biomet Healthcare Professionals Orthopedics Signature Personalized Patient Care* with the Oxford Partial Knee

The most widely used and clinically proven partial knee system in the world1 is now combined with an industry leading image-based approach to personalized patient care.

The Signature system's partial knee application utilizes MRI imaging to provide a consistent three-dimensional data set of the patient’s anatomy to enhance efficiency, and simplify partial knee arthroplasty. The intuitive layout of the Signature Partial Knee Planning Software provides a multitude of preoperative visualization options to fine-tune implant size and position and generate Signature positioning guides.

Signature Partial Knee Planning Software

  • Intuitive user interface and functionality
  • Five bone views provide a multitude of visualisation options
  • Transparent bone and/or implant views
  • Allows for fine-tuning of femoral and tibial implant sizing and position

Surgeon-approved plans dictate the femoral and tibial positioning guide design

Femoral and Tibial Positioning Guides

In the creation of patient-matched instrumentation, Signature femoral and tibial positioning guides embody the preoperative surgical plan as the basis for establishing femoral and tibial instrument positioning.

  • Incorporation of standard cutting blocks for intraoperative visualization and bone resections
  • Tibial positioning guide provides captured slot for vertical cut
  • Ability to adjust resection levels intraoperatively
  • Integration of alignment instrumentation for verification
  • Bone models, available for each case, represent the patient’s distinct femoral and tibial anatomy and provide the following preoperative and intraoperative features:
    • Resection landmarks and values
    • Resection lines (representing resection planes)
    • Rotational axes of femur and tibia
    • Guide registration area
