GAINESVILLE, Fla.

Exactech, a developer and producer of innovative implants, instrumentation, and smart technologies for joint replacement surgery, announced plans to accelerate the expansion of the Newton™ Knee to the Asia-Pacific region. This announcement follows last week’s 96th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Orthopaedic Association in Yokohama, Japan, where Exactech presented new research that showcases the ability to acquire joint laxities in the knee when using Newton over conventional techniques.

One of the first surgeons to use the Newton Knee, Hiroshi Watanabe, MD, with the Nippon Medical School Musashikosugi Hospital in Kanagawa Prefecture, commented, “Total knee arthroplasty with navigation technology requires an optimal balancing technique to ensure the suitable knee laxity and motion. Exactech’s Newton technology and its tibia-first technique is the most promising solution to help solve those issues and evaluate the knee laxity more precisely.”

The Newton Knee technique focuses on enhancing the surgical experience by providing valuable gap balance data to help achieve reproducible balance in total knee replacement procedures. Unlike other technologies, the Newton Knee technique utilizes a dynamic tensor to acquire real-time soft tissue data throughout the full arc of motion. Working in concert with the company’s pioneering ExactechGPS® system, this powerful technology helps visualize postoperative joint balance and stability to help execute a personalized positional plan before any bony resections are performed.

“Exactech is focusing its efforts and investments on unique surgical technologies that can most significantly improve clinical outcomes,” said Darin Johnson, Exactech President and Interim CEO. “The Newton balanced knee system provides surgeons with a robust platform of patient-specific insights that otherwise may not be available. Expanding access to this advanced technology into the APAC region is important for our company strategically, and for the surgeons and patients who can now benefit from this innovation.”

The Newton Knee is now commercially available in the Asia-Pacific region. For more information, visit www.NewtonKnee.com.
