Condition osteoarthritis
Treatment iuni® unicompartmental knee resurfacing device
Phase phase 4
Sponsor ConforMIS, Inc.
Start date April 2010
End date August 2014
Trial size 120 participants
Trial identifier NCT01117571, 09-001


The study objective is to evaluate the safety and performance of the ConforMIS iUni® Unicompartmental Knee Resurfacing Device in patients with single compartment osteoarthritis. The iUni is a patient-specific unicompartmental resurfacing device designed from the patient's unique anatomy using proprietary software which interprets data from the patient's CT scan. The patient matched implant design is then coupled with unique patient-matched disposable instrumentation designed using the same CT data and software.

Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
iUni® Unicompartmental Knee Resurfacing Device
iuni® unicompartmental knee resurfacing device
The iUni® Unicompartmental Resurfacing Device is an FDA cleared and CE Marked implant designed for patients with damage isolated to either the medial or lateral tibiofemoral compartment of the knee. The patient-specific iUni is designed from a CT scan of an individual patient's knee using a design process which interactively maps the diseased area and defines the extent of misalignment present in the knee. This process allows definition of the shape and size of the femoral and tibial components of the implant, as well as the disposable instrumentation
