As an increasingly more young people are suffering from joint diseases in China, patients have higher demand for joint function after operations. All of MicroPort® Medial Pivot Total Knee implants, such as the EVOLUTION™ Medial-Pivot Knee System, are designed based on the idea to enable patients to gain function more like a normal healthy knee. The devices imitate the natural motion of the knee by incorporating a patented ball-in-socket feature on the medial side, which enhances stability and allows the prosthesis to move and feel more like a normal knee.
Simon Chen, General Manager of MicroPort® OrthoRecon, said:" MicroPort® OrthoRecon aims to offer innovative and high-quality products to patients and surgeons and will continue to develop technologies that facilitate fast recovery."
