3D Planning & Guides for Knee Arthroplasty
Personalization meets precision
The best-laid plans are only as good as the execution. Enhance the predictability of both total and partial knee arthroplasties by combining 3D planning with our cost-effective surgical guides.
As the world's largest supplier of knee guides, we're proud to support our partners with the capacity, stability, and reliability they require to help improve patient outcomes.
12+ years enabling surgical precision
Over 350,000 patients treated
Enable personalized alignment
Uniquely designed for each patient for optimal implant alignment, knee guides provide the necessary precision to perform any alignment approach.
Transfer preoperative plans accurately and with fewer outliers compared to conventional surgery.
Less invasive surgery
The guides accurately position the knee implant during surgery, translating into a less invasive surgery for the patient.
Streamline knee replacements
Component size and implant alignment are decided before the surgery, meaning less inventory and streamlined workflows for the entire surgical team.
Reduce OR costs
These solutions offer great value for hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers with the potential to use up to 75% less instrumentation, reducing stock and sterilization costs.
Get powerful insights through our intuitive 3D planner
Target personalized alignment
Our flexible planning tools support any preferred alignment technique. Whether it's kinematic, restricted kinematic, functional, or another method, you can choose the right plan for every patient.
Cartilage color map
This feature in the Materialise knee planner allows you to view the cartilage left in the different regions of the joint surface.
Bone transparency and overlays
Assess implant sizing for overhang and osteophytes using Bone Transparency and Bone-Implant Overlays.
Assess notching and the completion of distal and anterior femoral cuts by using colored resections tool.
The safety and clinical usage of personalized knee guides or PSI knee has been reported in more than 1,200 clinical articles, both on total and partial arthroplasties. Around 93 papers refer specifically to the Materialise solution, distributed by our MDC partners.
