Exactech Unveils Next Evolution of Ligament-Driven Balancing Technology

Exactech, a global leader in medical technology, has introduced an upgraded version of its ExactechGPS® software, enhancing its ligament-driven balancing technology for total knee replacement surgery. This new software iteration integrates patient-centric planning and modern alignment philosophies, allowing surgeons to simultaneously plan femur and tibia resections based on intra-operative ligament laxity and alignment data. Dr. Thomas Meade, orthopaedic surgeon and department chair at Lehigh Valley Health Network, praised the technology's ability to personalize joint replacement surgeries while reducing the need for advanced imaging and accommodating natural ligament constraints.

The latest software release is part of Exactech's high-technology knee system, which includes 3D printed Truliant® cementless components and Activit-Etm polyethylene inserts, catering to the needs of younger, more active patients. Pete Cipolletti, Senior Director of Marketing for Exactech Knee & AST, highlighted the company's commitment to providing advanced technology for personalized knee surgery, emphasizing the increasing preference for the Newton Knee technique in GPS-guided knee replacements. With over 75,000 total knee replacements performed using GPS since its inception in 2010, Exactech continues to empower orthopaedic surgeons worldwide with innovative solutions through its Active Intelligence® ecosystem.
