TWIS-TKR: A Personalised Approach to Knee Replacement
TWIS-TKR, or Twisting Knee Replacement, represents a breakthrough in knee arthroplasty, prioritising custom rotational alignment for each patient. This advanced system adapts to the unique anatomy and biomechanics of each individual's knee, ensuring an implant that functions naturally and efficiently.
Discover how TWIS-TKR can transform your knee surgery experience.
The Importance of Custom Rotational Alignment in TWIS-TKR
Custom rotational alignment is the cornerstone of the TWIS-TKR approach. Unlike traditional knee replacements, TWIS-TKR assesses each patient's specific knee mechanics to ensure the implant aligns perfectly with their natural knee movement. This precision offers several benefits:
- Enhanced Knee Function: Aligning the implant with your natural knee mechanics for improved comfort and mobility.
- Reduced Wear and Tear: Precise alignment leads to less stress on the implant, extending its longevity.
- Faster and Smoother Recovery: A knee replacement that mimics your natural knee can result in a quicker return to daily activities.
