About the Signature™ System

The Signature™ system’s partial knee application utilizes MRI imaging to provide a consistent three-dimensional data set of the patient’s anatomy to enhance efficiency, and simplify partial knee arthroplasty. The intuitive layout of the Signature™ Partial Knee Planning Software provides a multitude of preoperative visualization options to fine-tune implant size and position and generate Signature™ positioning guides.

All Signature™ partial knee cases are planned as both partial and total knee applications based on surgeon preferences, allowing the surgeon to visualize critical anatomy and ultimately identify and approve the appropriate patient specific preoperative plan.

In the creation of patient-matched instrumentation, Signature™ femoral and tibial positioning guides embody the preoperative surgical plan as the basis for establishing femoral and tibial instrument positioning.

• Incorporation of standard cut blocks for intraoperative visualization and bone resections
• Tibial positioning guide provides captured slot for
vertical cut
• Ability to adjust resection levels intraoperatively
• Integration of alignment instrumentation for verification
• Bone models, available for each case, represent the patient’s distinct femoral and tibial anatomy and provide the following preoperative and intraoperative features:
- Resection landmarks and values
- Resection lines (representing
resection planes)
- Rotational axes of femur and tibia
- Guide registration area
