Under the collaboration agreement, Think Surgical will develop software that allows Total Joint’s Klassic knee system to be implanted using Think’s TSolution One total knee application.
Additionally, both companies will co-market the combined knee surgery solution once it garners 510(k) clearance, according to a news release.
Total Joint’s Klassic knee implant system is designed to restore natural kinematic function in a cost-effective manner, the company said. Combined with Think Surgical’s TSolution One total knee application, the system can be implanted with a designed and prepared surgical environment with precision and hands-free cutting of the bone.
“We are excited to partner with Think Surgical to provide surgeons with additional technological solutions to implant TJO’s Klassic knee,” Total Joint CEO Erin Hofmann said in the release. “As part of our evolution of technology, this partnership expands our portfolio of open source planning, navigation, and robotic options available to joint surgeons across the United States.”
“Think Surgical looks forward to the addition of TJO’s Klassic knee system to our open implant library, providing surgeons another choice in the treatment of patients with end-stage knee arthritis,” Think Surgical acting CEO Jay Yang added. “Much like the advanced technology offered by TJO, Think Surgical’s TSolution One total knee application, which features an active robot, is taking orthopedic surgery further in providing consistency and dimensional accuracy in total joint replacement procedures.”
