SensiTiN is a ceramic-like coating of titanium nitride, designed to reduce the release of metal ions from Medacta’s implants for knee replacement. This property makes SensiTiN the preferred choice of most orthopaedic surgeons for treating patients with metal hypersensitivity, and it is also considered a valid means of reducing the likelihood of hypersensitivity onset.
3D Metal is a state-of-the-art advanced biomaterial structure that is finely engineered for the bone. It is made of Titanium alloy (Ti6Al4V), and it is obtained by means of 3D printing technology, an innovative one-step layer-by-layer additive manufacturing process (not a coating). This advanced technology allows for designing engineered 3D structures starting from a CAD model in a precise, predictable and reproducible manner.
Mectagrip is Medacta’s plasma sprayed titanium coating designed to enhance initial stability due to its high coefficient of friction and potential long-term fixation inherent to titanium plasma sprayed devices. Plasma spray coating is one of the most clinically proven surfaces to achieve sound fixation in cementless total hip arthroplasty. Since its introduction in the 1980s, it has become one of the gold standards in cementless fixation.
