360 Knee Systems specialize in delivering innovative technological solutions for total knee replacement surgery. They work with orthopedic surgeons to provide dynamic, functional, and patient-specific planning and simulation solutions.
With Simpleware software, 360 Knee Systems have developed patient-specific preoperative plans that rely on creating accurate representations of patient bone geometry to solve challenges inherent to total knee replacements.
"We use Simpleware as our image processing software. The software is able to create extremely detailed and accurate 3D models of the knee from CT scans, which are used as inputs to our simulation and design of the patient-specific guides."
Willy Theodore, Systems Engineering Manager, 360 Knee Systems
CT scans of the hip, legs and ankle bones of patients are obtained by 360 Knee Systems, and imported to Simpleware ScanIP to generate 3D models capturing different details of the anatomy to a high level of quality and detail. 360 Knee Systems also use the Simpleware CAD module to carry out basic CAD manipulation for positioning implants within the patient geometries. The accuracy of the models ensures that realistic simulations can be carried out.
360 Knee Systems worked with Simpleware services team to write scripts to more easily perform repeatable operations such as optimizing the segmentation process and landmarking the scanned bones. Precise landmarking is crucial to the analysis of the geometry, as the results are used to create axes and references within the simulation. The scripts reduce the amount of manual work required for this task.
