Presurgical Modeling

With a Triathlon Custom Fit Knee featuring ShapeMatch Technology, the knee implant can be more closely fit to your unique anatomy. Pre-surgical planning allows your surgeon to use ShapeMatch Technology during your procedure.

With a fit that uses your own body as its guide.

The Triathlon Custom Fit Knee featuring ShapeMatch Technology allows your surgeon to size and position the implants based upon your unique anatomy. The ShapeMatch process begins with the aid of an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) taken of your knee before your surgery is scheduled. Proprietary software then utilizes the MRI images to create a three-dimensional knee model. With your presurgical modeling completed, your surgeon reviews the specifications based on the ShapeMatch Technology.

A Triathlon Custom Fit Knee with ShapeMatch Technology replacement allows your surgeon to perform your knee procedure with customized guides that are designed to provide a fit more closely matching your unique anatomy. With this innovative technology, your surgeon can position the implants to help restore the kinematics of your knee.
