Conformis Hip System Features iFit Image-to-Implant Technology

The proprietary iFit Image-to-Implant technology platform from Conformis is used to develop and manufacture joint replacement implants customized to fit each patient’s unique anatomy. The company recently announced US Food & Drug Administration clearance of its 3D-designed Conformis Hip System. The new system incorporates design improvements based on surgeon feedback after completion of over 400 surgeries. After each patient’s CT scan is converted into a 3D computer model, the patient’s measurements are transformed into a comprehensive, individualized, pre-operative surgical plan that is delivered to the surgeon along with the custom implant. The surgeon is also provided with a set of disposable patient-specific 3D-printed jigs, to aid in implant positioning.
