The Orthopaedic Innovation Centre released a new white paper on the testing and validation of a patient-specific surface-guided total knee replacement.

Three things to know:

1. The joint replacement design has a high range of motion and patient-specific knee kinematics for a more precise fit.

2. The implant's low articular surface pressure is designed to reduce the risk of polyethylene damage and lower wear rate.

3. The Orthopaedic Innovation Centre is a medical device testing nonprofit.
