Features and Benefits of JOURNEY II Total Knee Arthroplasty - Rediscover normal

 

  • Smoother recovery
  • Improved function
  • Higher patient satisfaction

 

Smoother recovery

JOURNEY II TKA has been demonstrated to significantly improve flexion by enabling 23º range of motion improvement earlier in the recovery period.3

JOURNEY II TKA smoother recovery

Improved function

The normal knee designs of JOURNEY II TKA have shown to deliver improvements in both knee function and motion with increased medial/lateral (M/L) stability mid-flexion.4-6

JOURNEY II TKA improved function

Higher patient satisfaction

Quicker recovery, improved function and normal kinematic patterns of motion lead to high levels of patient satisfaction.3-5

JOURNEY II TKA higher patient satisfaction

Market Information

Defining normal

Advanced technology should lead to extraordinary outcomes. Using cutting edge computer simulation, JOURNEY II TKA is designed to restore the function of the normal knee; replicating anatomic shape, position and motion resulting in higher patient satisfaction.1

The JOURNEY II TKA has been designed to do what no other total knee replacement currently does, restore normal position, shapes and motion.2-5

Normal shape

Accurate replication of anatomic, asymmetric femoral profile

JOURNEY II TKA normal shape

Medial concavity and lateral convexity of the tibial geometries restored

JOURNEY II TKA normal shape medial concavity

Normal position

The JOURNEY II knee is designed with an anterior tibial sulcus to restore the native knee’s normal starting AP position, preventing paradoxical motion.

 

JOURNEY II TKA normal position

The JOURNEY II knee is designed with an anterior dwell point and 3° varus jointline which restores the natural patellar tendon angle and improves patella track.

JOURNEY II TKA normal position patella track

Normal motion

Full extension: 0º

The anatomic position in full extension reduces paradoxical motion in the early gait cycle

JOURNEY II TKA Normal Motion full extension

Mid-flexion: 1-90º

Concave medial tibial plateau provides anatomic stability while proprietary convex lateral plateau drives external rotation

Asymmetrical posterior cam promotes femoral external rotation and aligns anatomic patella femoral angle

JOURNEY II TKA Normal Motion mid flexion

Deep-flexion: 90+º

External rotation is maximized to reduce stress in the knee

Mimicking the normal knee, JOURNEY II TKA translates bilaterally posteriorly with lateral plateau relief to maximize deep flexion6

JOURNEY II TKA Normal Motion deep flexion
