ZimmerBiomet Persona

While designing the Persona Knee, we used a combination of advanced research tools to study hundreds of knees, creating a global bone atlas. This furthered our understanding of native anatomic shape and function which allowed us to better match our implant shapes and sizes to patients of different ethnicity, gender, and stature.4-5 In a market focused on matching the bone to the implant shape and size, we found that the opposite needed to happen... we need to match the implant to the shape and size of the resected bone. In doing so, we confirmed that implant shape really matters. Fit really matters. Instrumentation and technology really matters. The Persona Knee was designed with all these elements in mind, because we believe a way to predictably improve patient satisfaction is to more closely reproduce the original.
