3D-printed implant from restor3d used in surgery for the first time

Medical device company restor3d, which specializes in 3D-printed implants and other technologies, successfully implanted the Kinos Axiom Total Ankle System with TIDAL technology and unveiled the companion mobile app for the r3id Personalized Surgery platform.

The Kinos Axiom Total Ankle System, a revolutionary innovation in total ankle arthroplasty, now features TIDAL Technology. TIDAL Technology is restor3d’s interconnected porous architecture, which is designed to optimize bone in-growth and fixation for long-term implant stability. Combined with the biomechanics of the Kinos Axiom, this proprietary bone-implant interface of the 3D printed tibial and talar implants maximize cortical bone contact to deliver functionality and longevity of the prosthesis.

Keith Jacobson, DPM, FACFAS, of Advanced Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Specialists, a division of Orthopedic Centers of Colorado, based in Denver, implanted the first 3D printed Kinos Axiom Total Ankle System with TIDAL Technology last week.

“As an existing user, I was pleased to be the first surgeon to use the new 3D printed tibial implant for one of my patients. Key to implant survivorship, this system was effectively designed to optimize bony ingrowth. These advancements demonstrate restor3d’s dedication to putting patient outcomes first.”

In September of 2022, restor3d announced the release of the r3id Personalized Surgery platform during the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society (AOFAS) Annual Conference in Quebec City, Canada. The r3id platform serves as the ultimate personalized surgery planning experience. r3id provides surgeons the ability to create and track cases, as well as collaborate with restor3d’s Design Engineering Team to maximize surgical outcomes. By bringing the r3id App to iOS and Android mobile devices, users can now collaborate, design, and approve on the go.

“The release of the Kinos Axiom Total Ankle System with TIDAL Technology is predicated on years of scientific research and engineering development. We are proud to deliver a data-driven implant system with market-disrupting innovation to address the clinical needs for patients receiving ankle arthroplasty. Additionally, the launch of r3id for mobile is a significant advancement of restor3d’s vision to deliver an enhanced surgical planning solution,” said Cambre Kelly, PhD, restor3d’s Chief Technology Officer. “The latest version of the r3id application facilitates a seamless collaboration among restor3d’s Design Engineering team, surgeons, clinical staff members, and sales agents.”

restor3d will showcase these newly launched products in addition to others currently available at the AOFAS Winter Meeting in Big Sky, Montana. AOFAS attendees will have several opportunities throughout the week to experience these product offerings firsthand by visiting the company’s booth in the exhibit hall.
