Exactech announced today the signing of an exclusive distribution agreement with orthopaedic manufacturer Bodycad for its Reflex Uni™ knee in the U.S.

This new product offering expands Exactech’s Truliant® primary and revision knee system to include a personalized unicompartmental implant that is designed to fit each patient’s unique anatomy. Truliant Reflex Uni is the latest addition to Exactech’s Active Intelligence® technology platform of personalized, data-driven solutions designed to improve patient outcomes.

Leveraging the latest in 3D printing technology, Truliant Reflex Uni was developed by Bodycad using a proprietary software algorithm and a fully integrated production system. Bodycad has developed an innovative 3D image rendering, digital planning, and production system to optimize personalized restoration of each patient’s anatomy. Bodycad’s proprietary software serves as the digital backbone to highly automate all processes.

The resulting patient-specific unicompartmental knee replacement requires no off-the-shelf implants and minimal instrumentation, making it ideally suited for an efficient hospital or ambulatory surgery center. In addition, Truliant Reflex Uni offers patients a better fit and potential for improved clinical results and satisfaction.

“Innovation in unicompartmental knee implants has been stagnant for years,” said John McDaniel, Exactech’s Senior Vice President, Large Joints. “We intentionally delayed offering a partial knee until we had something that could address the shortcomings of existing designs. With Truliant Reflex Uni, surgeons have the option to change implant design and placement to meet the needs of each patient. We’re excited about this personalized solution and its potential to maximize bone coverage, achieve proper alignment, and optimize joint function.”

“Bodycad’s indisputable expertise in the computer design of personalized unicompartmental prostheses united with the knowledgeable US sales force of Exactech is a union which will allow us to raise the success of a personalized joint restoration,” said CEO and Founder of Bodycad Jean Robichaud.

The Truliant Knee System is an award-winning platform of implants, instruments and technology that helps surgeons achieve reproducibility and efficiency in primary and revision knee arthroplasty. Exactech’s Active Intelligence portfolio connects surgeons and patients with smart decisions throughout the journey of care.
