HAYWARD, Calif. & LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For the millions of patients with mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis (wear), an innovative advance in knee surgery continues to demonstrate success according to patient follow up data from clinical trials. The KineSpringĀ® System is an implantable medical spring that works by unloading the weight on the diseased knee joint, without making any changes to the anatomy. Follow-up data from 100 patients pooled from multiple clinical studies showed that the KineSpring System significantly reduced osteoarthritis pain and significantly improved knee function by over 80% for patients beyond the 3 year follow-up time point. Data has now been collected from patients up to 4 years following the procedure. Typically patients had a short hospital stay (less than 2 days), were walking unaided within 2 weeks and possessed full range of movement by 3 months.
