Bi-Cruciate Stabilized Knee System


The JOURNEY II Bi-Cruciate Stabilized knee system has been intricately designed, engineered and tested to facilitate near-normal kinematics;1,2 shown to enhance patient satisfaction and significantly improve patient-reported Knee Society Scores (KSS).3,4

Using physiological matching technology, JOURNEY II BCS has demonstrated pronounced femoral rollback upon flexion and improved mid-flexion medio-lateral stability.5

Rediscover normal

Over 90% of patients return to work within 6 months of surgery.6

23% more flexion than posterior-stabilized TKA after 1 year.3

Evidence demonstrated major revisions of around 1% at 6 years.7


Featuring VERILAST technology, with OXINIUM (oxidized zirconium) and highly cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE), for improved wear performance.8 


Near-complete elimination of paradoxical motion and anterior sliding of the femur during flexion.9-16


Designed to restore anatomic alignment and normal knee kinematic patterns throughout the full range of motion.12-16


 Designed to restore normal kinematics throughout the range of motion and help patients return to normal activities and lifestyle.17,18
