ATTUNE® Cementless Knee System
The ATTUNE® Cementless Knee System includes the patented technologies of the ATTUNE Knee System. We have maintained the ATTUNE GRADIUS™ Curve to provide stability through the range of motion1,2,3 and GLIDERIGHT™ Articulation for improved patella-femoral kinematics.4 The SOFCAM™ Contact provides smooth engagement while minimizing stresses to the tibial spine5,6 for the PS variants. The INTUITION™ Instruments combined with the surgical process are designed to provide an intuitive and efficient surgical technique that allows surgeons to balance the soft tissues and precisely control the implant position and fit for each patient. Our ATTUNE Cementless System has learned from the heritage of the LCS®Cementless Knee System utilizing the same POROCOAT® Porous Coating and coated lug philosophy, which has demonstrated 97.4% survivorship at 18.1 years.7
Features & Benefits
ATTUNE GRADIUSTM Curve
The patented ATTUNE GRADIUS Curve is the gradually reducing femoral radius designed to provide a smooth transition from stability to rotational freedom through a patient’s range of motion.
The GLIDERIGHT Articulation encompasses a trochlear groove designed to accommodate patient variation and soft tissue interaction and patella components designed to optimize patella tracking while maintaining bone coverage.
The INTUITION Instruments combine surgical process with intuitive and efficient instruments to allow the surgeon to balance the soft tissue and precisely control the implant position and fit for each patient.
POROCOAT® Porous Coating
POROCOAT Porous Coating has shown positive performance in stability and fixation in DePuy Synthes hip, knee, and shoulder total joint replacements.7,8,9
Based on our clinical heritage, the central design of the ATTUNE Rotating Platform Tibial Base allows the tibial insert to rotate as the knee flexes, which allows for a more natural motion and may also reduce the stress and wear on the implant. 10,11,12
