Foundation is the knee for all patients, accommodating deformities and adapting to intra-operative situations. A surgeon can construct the appropriate components using a variety of articulating, stem, and augment options. The Foundation Knee has stood the test of time, with over seventeen years of clinical history.
•Reproducible Knee Kinematics
The femoral cam and tibial spine are designed to engage at 60° flexion to induce smooth roll back and to provide for 130° of flexion. The deepened, recessed, and extended patella groove on the Foundation ® Femoral Component minimizes patellar advancement, promotes normal biomechanics, and provides increased resistance to patellar dislocation.
•Knee Joint Constraint
The Foundation Constrained Insert was designed to maximize "in-plane" joint motion while minimizing "out-of-plane" translation and rotation. The larger post on the constrained insert allows for minimal amounts of medial/lateral slide, varus/valgus motion, and internal/external rotation. Modular stem extensions provide added support in bone deficient scenarios.
•Bone Deficiency Management
Augmentation blocks address side specific bone deficiencies. The unique attachment design provides a secure mechanical lock between modular components. The tibial blocks can be used with either the Modular Revision or the Non-Porous Primary Tibial Baseplates. The femoral blocks can be used with either the Modular Revision or the P.S. Femoral Components.
