QUEBEC CITY, Sept. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Bodycad has announced that the first personalized restoration procedures using its Unicompartmental Knee System in patients have been successfully performed.

Bodycads Unicompartmental Knee System provides a truly personalized orthopaedic restoration designed to match the exact anatomical needs of a patient.

Bodycad's revolutionary system is designed to optimize personalized restoration of the patient's unique anatomical features and kinematics. The system is based on proprietary 3D rendering of medical images of the patient's anatomy, resulting in a better fit and the potential for improved clinical results and patient satisfaction.

"The personalized restoration enabled me to perform the procedure in an exact manner with minimal bone resection," said Dr. Brian Hamlin, Co-Director of the Bone and Joint Center of Magee-Womens Hospital of University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, one of two orthopaedic surgeons to perform the procedure. "The reconstruction resulted in a well balanced knee with optimized tracking while avoiding overcorrection."

Bodycad uses proprietary imaging algorithms to produce a precise 3D image of the patient's knee. Its suite of Personalized Restoration Software enables a seamless integration of the image to implant process called the PREP (personalized restoration evaluation process). The efficient, rapid, and highly automated process is the only one of its kind in the world that is impeccably integrated between software and modern manufacturing such as 3D printing.

"I was involved throughout the production of the personalized restoration," said Prof. Werner Siebert of Vitos Orthopedic Clinic Kassel and incoming President of the German Orthopaedic Society, who also performed the procedure. "I provided patient imaging, consulted with a Bodycad PREP Tech on the resulting rendering, and then reviewed and approved the final design. The result was an exceptional fit for the patient."

"Everyone's anatomy is unique and that's why standardized implants have limitations," says Jean Robichaud, President and Founder of Bodycad. "These recent procedures reinforce a growing body of evidence that demonstrates the benefit of personalized restorations."

Earlier this year, the company received US and European clearance for its Unicompartmental Knee System and is working collaboratively with practitioners to offer this personalized approach to orthopaedics.
