The technology used to manufacture your custom-made implant
Conformis implants and instruments are designed based on each patient’s CT scan. An automated design process maps the size and shape of the knee joint in 3D. Our proprietary software uses that information to design the implants and instrumentation that will match precisely to the 3D model of the knee, correcting the data for any underlying arthritic deformity such as bone spurs, cysts or flattening of the joint.
Once the model has been created, we 3D print a wax mold that will be used to cast the femoral and tibial components of each implant. We also print a set of disposable, patient-specific iJig® instrumentation for each and every patient.
Conformis does something that we believe no other knee implant manufacturer has done. We combine advanced 3D imaging technology with the latest in manufacturing capabilities to put the patient at the center of implant design.Contact Us
