Bedford, Mass. – March 24, 2015 – ConforMIS, Inc., a medical technology company providing customized total knee replacement implants for patients, today announced a new generation of the company’s iTotal® CR (cruciate-retaining) total knee replacement. The new generation iTotal CR was designed to improve procedural efficiency by further reducing the number of intraoperative steps required during a knee replacement surgery. The company will demonstrate the latest generation iTotal CR at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) meeting in Las Vegas, March 25-27, 2015.
