Designed for you
MyKnee is a 3D Printed surgical instrument which fits your knee accurately, because it is tailored for you.
The MyKnee technology allows for preparation of the bones for implanting the prosthesis, respecting the characteristics of your anatomy.
MyKnee fits the shape of the knee accurately, allowing for precise preparation of the bone for implanting the prosthesis. Each phase of the operation is planned in advance by the surgeon taking into account the patient’s condition. It has been proven that an accurate positioning results in increased survival of the prosthesis.
The use of the MyKnee technology is very simple and straightforward. It potentially allows the surgeon to reduce the operating time, thus decreasing the time under anaesthetic and the risk of infection.
MyKnee eliminates the need of medullary canal violation by producing customized extra-medullary jigs. Clinical studies demonstrate that the blood loss and the risk of embolism significantly decrease if the medullary canal is left intact.
The MyKnee journey
The surgeon will ask you to have a 3D scan (CT or MRI) of your knee.
Using the 3D scans, Medacta will create a 3D model of your knee.
Using the model of your knee, Medacta engineers assist the surgeon and create your personalized surgical instruments.
Prior to surgery, your surgeon will receive the 3D printed MyKnee instruments and the 3D bone model of your knee. These instruments will be used to perform the surgery.
Enjoy your new knee!
Why not MyKnee instead of Conventional procedures?
The positioning of a knee prosthesis is achieved using surgical instruments to prepare the bone for implanting the prosthesis.
In conventional procedures, surgical instruments are the same for all patients.
Conventional instrumentation must be adjusted by the surgeon during the procedure in order to achieve satisfactory positioning for each individual.
MyKnee: a Medacta Solution
Medacta, after analyzing a diagnostic image of your leg, provides your surgeon with an instrument that is designed and manufactured specifically for your knee, and approved by your surgeon on the basis of computer-aided planning.
MyKnee instruments are manufactured with innovative 3D Printing technology. This solution offers a very accurate manufacturing process and the highest design flexibility to match your knee anatomy. This allows for the creation of instruments that are specifically tailored for your knee, always respecting high quality standards.
