The U2 Knee™ system is a modern generation knee designed for today’s active patient population. The knee incorporates rotational freedom principles so as to avoid soft tissue conflict and polyethylene impingement seen in other contemporary knee designs1. A bone preserving PS box accommodates varying femoral anatomies.  To suit the active patient population the U2 Knee™ also allows upto 155o of safe high flexion, without additional posterior condylar bone resection, reducing the risk of loosening reported with traditional high-flex components2.

Building on a modern implant philosophy, the U2 Knee™ incorporates a versatile and streamlined instrument platform, which fits into four boxes, and accommodates both CR and PS knee implantation. The platform also incorporates a unique, patent pending, all in one femoral sizer, rotation and resection jig that enables the surgeon to adjust implant positioning to suit individual patient anatomies.
