The benefits of a rotating platform knee Unlike traditional knee implants (known as fixed bearing knees), the rotating platform knee is designed to accommodate bending and rotation. It was the first knee available in the United States designed to accommodate this type of natural rotation. In mechanical testing, the ability of the rotating platform knee to rotate was shown to help reduce wear by as much as 94%.2 Patients who took part in a DePuy Synthes Joint Reconstruction multi-surgeon study reported a 97% satisfaction rating with their rotating platform knee five years after surgery.4 Important safety information As with any medical treatment, individual results may vary. The performance of a knee replacement depends on your age, weight, activity level and other factors. There are potential risks, and recovery takes time. People with conditions limiting rehabilitation should not have this surgery. Only an orthopaedic surgeon can tell you if knee replacement is right for you.

An implant that bends and rotates— to promote more natural movement When you’re considering knee replacement surgery, it’s only natural to want your knee implant to move more like your original knee. You already know your knee moves back and forth like a hinge, but did you know it also rotates? How much does your knee rotate? As you bend your knee, it naturally rotates to the right or left by as much as 15°, depending on the activity you’re doing. In general, the more you bend your knee, the more it rotates, as shown below: Activity Climbing Stairs When the knee rotates, stress is placed on...
