Case Study - A World-First in Knee Surgery

While the first iteration of the Formus software has focused on the hip and shoulder joints, Formus Labs is also now actively working in the knee space. This recent case study, successfully completed alongside Dr. Paul Monk and the Auckland Bioengineering Institute (ABI), showcases the versatility and effectiveness of the Formus platform.

This case study centered around a high tibial osteotomy (HTO), a procedure whereby the knee joint is realigned through the cutting and insertion of a wedge to relieve pressure on the affected joint. This procedure is primarily used in cases of early-onset arthritis, as a preventative measure or an alternative to a full knee replacement.
