Moving from primary to revision, fixed to mobile, cemented to cementless, or dealing with complex cases is straightforward, even intra-operatively. This flexible, versatile system includes a ceramic option for your high demand, active patients, ensuring low wear in the longer term.
High conformity between the articulating surfaces in the patello-femoral and tibio-femoral joint spaces ensures excellent function, low wear and long term clinical success. A proven system with over 25,000 implantations to date and 12 years clinical follow-up.PRECISE FIT
Through anthropometric studies, the MULTIGEN PLUS Total Knee System range ensures precise fit in both the AP and ML planes in both male and female patients.
Industry standard EtO sterilised polyethylene ensures low wear and successful long term outcomes.
Further wear reduction for high demand, active patients can further be enhanced when combined with the ceramic femur.
The MULTIGEN PLUS Total Knee System instrument kit reflects Lima’s investment in R&D, providing surgeons with simple, intuitive surgical techniques which allow for modern, reduced incisions. THE UNIQUE BIOLOX® DELTA CERAMIC KNEE
