Patient Outcomes

Knee replacements designed for active lifestyles

Most total knee replacements don't perform as well as total hip replacements. In fact, patients with total knee replacements are 92% less satisfied with their implants than hip patients are with their hip implants1.

But today's fastest growing segment of knee replacement patients is seeking a return to a more active lifestyle2

This is where JOURNEY II can help. Its anatomic restoration is designed to provide higher level of patient satisfaction and activity3.

Stability

Anatomic, articular surfaces are designed to restore native anatomy and yield a normal anatomic A/P position throughout the range of motion.

Strength

More normal muscle firing patterns are expected due to the proper A/P positioning, thereby preventing muscle fatigue during activities of daily living.

Satisfaction

Improving patients’ ease of activities of daily living can be expected due to the anticipated improvements of strength and stability.

Durability

VERILAST is a combination of OXINIUM Oxidized Zirconium and highly cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE). Using VERILAST, JOURNEY II is designed to match the same high standards for wear performance.
