DePuy Synthes, part of the Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies, has entered into a commercial agreement with Australian developer 360 KNEE SYSTEMS.
The Australian company is a developer of digital solutions to personalise total knee replacement surgery. Under this agreement, 360 KNEE SYSTEMS will be available with DePuy Synthes’ ATTUNE Knee System in Australia and New Zealand.
The 360 KNEE SYSTEMS platform enables patients to participate in and personalise their own treatment plan before, during and after total knee replacement surgery.
It features technologies such as wearable devices to help surgeons plan the treatment pathway with their patients. This includes mapping each patient’s body motion data and preparing a 3D model of the knee to create a virtual surgery plan unique to them. Post-surgery, the 360 KNEE SYSTEMS platform provides the patient with a personalised rehabilitation and monitoring program.
“Our agreement represents an exciting opportunity to provide an end-to-end digital solutions and surgical platform that brings the individual needs of patients right into the heart of decision making for their total knee replacement,” said Sue Martin, Managing Director of Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies in Australia and New Zealand. “We are excited about how digital health will help us redefine success in surgery and improve outcomes in addition to our products and other solutions.”
“Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices has a proven track record in developing meaningful innovation, and we are excited to be investing locally with 360 KNEE SYSTEMS,” said Tim Czartoski, President, Global Joint Reconstruction, DePuy Synthes. “We are building a digital ecosystem where technologies are connected before, during and after surgery in line with our aim to improve outcomes for patients as well as increase their overall satisfaction with their healthcare experience.”
