Bodycad Announces First Use of Its Next Generation Unicompartmental Knee System, BC Reflex Uni™, in Patients
Bodycad has announced that the first personalized restoration procedure using its next generation Unicompartmental Knee System, BC Reflex Uni™, in patients has been successfully performed.
Bodycad has developed an innovative digital planning and production system to optimize personalized restoration of the patient’s anatomy and kinematics. The system is based on proprietary 3D rendering of medical images of the patient’s anatomy with a proprietary production system, resulting in a better fit and the potential for improved clinical results and patient satisfaction.
“This next generation unicondylar implant system allowed me to precisely plan and perform a personalized procedure that resulted in a great fit for the patient,” said Dr. Stefan Kreuzer, Founder of INOV8 Orthopedics in Houston, Texas.
Bodycad uses proprietary imaging algorithms to produce precise 3D images of patient anatomy. They have developed a suite of Personalized Restoration Software to enable seamless integration of the image to implant production process. Unlike other personalized solutions, Bodycad has developed proprietary software to serve as the digital backbone to highly automate all of the processes including 3D printing.
“We believe that personalization is the future because you no longer have to compromise with the fit of an off the shelf solution for patients,” says Jean Robichaud, President and Founder of Bodycad. “Our recent experience with BC Reflex Uni™ as well as our other products demonstrates the benefit of personalized restorations.”
The company received 510k clearance for BC Reflex Uni™ at the end of 2019. In addition, Bodycad recently received US and Canadian clearance for osteotomy solutions around the knee, BC Fine Osteotomy™.
