ATTUNE was designed to provide more range of motion and address the unstable feeling knee implants often give patients during activities such as stair descent and bending, according to the release.
Up to 20 percent of knee replacement patients are not completely satisfied with their devices, so DePuy Synthes dedicated six years of research to developing the ATTUNE product. About 3,500 patients have received the device as part of a limited launch, according to the release.
