The Cori handheld robotic system supports the entire continuum of care in knee arthroplasty. It offers a comprehensive solution for navigated total hip arthroplasty as well.
Cori’s new image-agnostic, robotic-assisted solution could further help personalize surgery and advance efficiencies. The London-based orthopedic giant feels the updates to the system help to optimize performance across its orthopedic reconstruction portfolio.
Smith+Nephew plans to offer a look at the new solutions at AAOS 2024 in San Francisco this week.
The new features from Smith+Nephew include the RI.KNEE software to enable joint line restoration and improve outcomes. Smith+Nephew first unveiled its Personalized Planning (powered by AI) and RI.Insights data visualization platform — the basis for these new features — in May 2023. The company also boasts its RI.HIP navigation, which enables a computer-guided approach to total hip arthroplasty.
RI.KNEE robotics version 2.0 with Personalized Planning provides AI-powered reference values as guidance. This enables surgeons to set preferences for initial implant starting positions customized to patient deformity.
The company also plans to show off its Cori digital tensioner, launched in April 2023. The tensioner provides objective gap data and quantifies joint laxity prior to making bone resections in total knee arthroplasty.
Dr. Thorsten Seyler of Duke University says the platform is the only one on the market allowing for personalized planning with simulation and AI.
“When introducing personalized options to manage specific pathologies, we see increased patient satisfaction and clinical outcomes,” Seyler said. “These continue to elevate the level of care we as surgeons may provide to our patients.”
