“Medacta delivers innovations that move the orthopedic industry forward, focusing on providing personalized solutions for every patient. Through our collaboration with expert surgeons worldwide, we highlight the value of Kinematic Alignment (KA) to the forefront of knee replacement techniques, and we look forward to showcasing the proven synergies between MyKATM and GMK® Sphere at this year’s meeting,' stated Francesco Siccardi, Chief Executive Officer of Medacta International. “Attendees will also have the opportunity to experience real-time demonstrations of our NextARTM platform and discover how augmented reality intraoperative guidance can improve efficiency and precision in surgical procedures.”

  • MyKA, Kinematic Alignment Platform, provides surgeons with the most comprehensive solution to safely and reproducibly perform Kinematic Alignment. It includes GMK Sphere knee implant, dedicated instrumentation developed to perform a personalized, reproducible surgical technique based on measured bone resections, tailored education programs, and MyKnee® KA 3D preoperative planning and 3D printed patient-matched guides optimized for Kinematic Alignment.

  • NextAR is the first platform to offer augmented reality solutions for joint replacement and spine procedures, leveraging patient-specific, unique real-time data to complement operative workflow efficiently. Through advanced 3D planning tools, a revolutionary single-use tracking system, and augmented reality, NextAR enables data-driven decision-making allowing surgeons to perform personalized procedures based on each patient's unique anatomy and biomechanics. NextAR is offered as a hardware system with limited capital investment and single-use instrumentation at a low cost per case and offers the ability to host software for multiple applications, representing an optimal solution worldwide, particularly for Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs). NextAR is part of the MySolutionsTM Personalized Ecosystem, an advanced network of digital solutions designed to improve patient outcomes and healthcare efficiency during the entire episode of care.

Both MyKA and NextAR are supported by the comprehensive, tailored educational offerings provided by the M.O.R.E. Institute. With an international network of expert surgeons, the M.O.R.E. Institute is at the forefront of education with personalized, high-level educational pathways. With Medacta, the surgeon is never alone.
