OrthAlign, Inc. is committed to improving the standard of care in orthopedics surgery by providing simple, precise solutions for precise joint alignment. Our KneeAlign® 2 system focuses on
total knee arthroplasty (TKA), also known as total knee replacement, a procedure that is performed over 600,000 times a year in the United States.20 However, approximately 31% of TKA procedures were poorly aligned.21 Over time, poor alignment (also described as
malalignment) can lead to knee implant failure, causing pain and requiring revision surgery.
Over the past decade, large console
computer–assisted surgery systems have been shown to significantly reduce the incidence of poorly aligned knee implants. However, only about 3% of TKA procedures in the United States currently use computer-assisted surgery systems.22 This low adoption rate is due to a variety of factors, including extended learning curves, longer operative times and expensive capital equipment.
The KneeAlign® 2 system is equivalent to large console computer-assisted surgery systems in the precise measurements that enable
femoral and tibial
implant alignment. Unlike large console computer-assisted surgery systems, the KneeAlign® 2system allows the surgeon to make these measurements in a simple, user-friendly procedure. The KneeAlign® 2 navigation unit is about the size of a cell phone.
