The Mako™ Robotic-Arm Assisted System is less invasive than traditional total knee surgery and is performed using RIO®, a highly advanced, surgeon controlled robotic arm system.
The RIO Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System features three dimensional pre-surgical planning. During surgery, the RIO provides the surgeon with real-time visual, tactile and auditory feedback to facilitate optimal joint resurfacing and implant positioning. It is this optimal placement that can result in more natural knee motion following surgery.
RIO assists the surgeon in achieving natural knee kinematics and optimal results at a level of precision previously unattainable with conventional instrumentation.
Accurately plan implant size, orientation and alignment utilizing CT-derived 3-D modeling
Enabling the pre-resection capture of patient-specific kinematic tracking through full flexion and extension
Real-time intra-operative adjustments for correct knee kinematics and soft-tissue balance
Minimally invasive and bone sparing, with minimal tissue trauma for faster recovery
