Implant designs feature bone sparing, curved surfaces. These implant features are enabled by Mako robotic-arm assistance which allows surgeons to create anatomic, sculpted resections68 using a single 6mm burr to complete the entire case.
Mako patellofemoral: the trochlear notch was designed to curl into the femur to aid smooth patella transition to the condyles.68
Mako femur: the anterior region includes a twist for patella relief (for avoidance of impingement).68
X3 polyethylene precisely engineered polyethylene underpins Stryker’s total hip, knee and shoulder arthroplasty solutions. Stryker’s patented39 process creates a polyethylene that is uniquely strong40,41 and intrinsically resistant to wear40 and oxidation.42 X3’s manufacturing process of sequential crosslinking uses three separate gamma irradiation doses with an annealing step after each.
