Rejoint Gains €3MM Grant

January 11, 2019, 1:00 pm

Rejoint received a €3MM (~US $3.4MM) grant from the EU's Horizon 2020 SME Innovation and Research Program as a recipient of the Fast Track to Innovation award. Funds will support commercialization of the YourKnee™ total knee replacement system.

The YourKnee approach combines elements of 3D printing, patient-specific implants, artificial intelligence and wearables to design personalized implants, surgical simulation and post-op rehabilitation tools for every patient.

Mechanical testing of the system was successfully completed in 4Q18.

Among others, Rejoint has partnered with the information technology EU joint venture formed between Sensoria Health in the U.S. and ICT in the Netherlands, as well as the Italian computer-aided surgery company Orthokey and Fundación Rioja Salud Research Hospital in Spain.

Cobalt Chrome Additive Total Knee Successfully Tested by Italian Startup

Italian startup Rejoint recently completed its first ASTM mechanical testing campaign of YourKnee™, a cobalt chrome total knee replacement system additively manufactured using Electron Beam Melting (EBM).

Cobalt chrome is the most widely used metal in knee implants. According to Rejoint leadership, the company aims for YourKnee to be the first CE-Marked cobalt chrome total knee system utilizing EBM additive manufacturing. "There are companies that claim to provide 3D-printed total knees," commented Gian Guido Riva, Founder and CEO of Rejoint. "The reality is that they 3D-print patient-specific plastic instruments, or they 3D-print a wax mold that will be used to cast the femoral and tibial components of each implant."

The first YourKnee surgery is slated to occur in Italy during 1Q19, with commercial partner Link Orthopaedics. Limited launch is slated for 2H19, following expected receipt of CE Mark approval in 2Q19.

Rejoint’s approach to total knee replacement leverages elements of artificial intelligence, advanced analytics, surgical simulation, pre-op planning, patient-specific femoral and tibial components, wearables and post-op rehabilitation to bring greater efficiencies to procedures and aid patient recovery.

Other partners to Rejoint include Arcam, a GE Additive Company; Enhatch, developer of an inventory/logistics platform and Fit2Kit™ patient-specific planning software; Orthokey, provider of Computer Aided Surgery tools like the Perseus smart cutting guide for YourKnee total knee replacement; and Sensoria Health, a provider of artificial intelligence solutions for healthcare including senors for post-op rehab. 

Rejoint leadership boasts several decades of experience in the medical device industry, previously working for companies including Stryker, Smith & Nephew, Covidien, SAMO and Sorin.

Mr. Riva, previously CEO of SAMO, said that Rejoint’s successful mechanical test marked a milestone for the company and its partners. “After several years of close collaboration with leading surgeons and our technology partners, we have validated the use of the material and are prepared to deliver the future of orthopaedic surgery."

Rejoint Successfully Completes Mechanical Testing of YourKnee™ TKA System

 

Balogna, Italy – Nov. 30, 2018 – Rejoint is proud to announce the successful completion of mechanical testing for the YourKneeTM EBM Cobalt Chrome 3D-Printed Knee for Total Knee Replacement.

The Rejoint YourKneeTM uses artificial intelligence to custom fit the implants to the patients’ natural anatomical shape and size. In February 2019, the first custom YourKneeTM surgery will  be performed in Milan, Italy, in cooperation with Link Orthopaedics.

“Today marks an incredible milestone for Rejoint, Arcam/GE Additive and the orthopedic industry. After several years of close collaboration with leading orthopedic surgeons, and the team at Arcam, we have validated the use of the material and are prepared to deliver the future of orthopedic surgery”, says Gian Guido Riva, Founder and CEO of Rejoint.

The Rejoint YourKneeTM Total Knee Arthroplasty System will be indicated for use in the reduction of painful knee osteoarthritis and limited range of motion and the company is planning a broader, limited launch of the system in the second half of 2019 following CE mark.

A new startup in Total Knees to keep your eye on!

Ortho Streamers, I would like to share a hot new startup in Total Knees based in Milan, Italy.

Rejoint is the first startup to bring together all of the latest technologies for a better TKA product and service. AI + 3D Printing + Wearables.

Artificial Intelligence – REJOINT has partnered with REJOINT to take advantage of their Fit3Kit system of artificial intelligence tools that allow algorithms to optimize the size, placement and shape of the implant. This feeds into the surgical navigation and clinical plan and reduces the instrumentation down to a mayo stand. All completed in the cloud in seconds.

3D Printing – REJOINT has also taken advantage of 3D Printing of implants including CoCr for the femoral and tibiar components.

Wearables – REJOINT will also take advantage of wearables to track clinical performance.

What are the HOT STARTUPS in Orthopedics right now?

People ask me this question all the time.  Orthopedic startups have come and gone for decades. I have a good eye for seeing the ones that are positioned for big disruption and success.  This skill served me well in joining Ellipse Technologies just before the startup took off.

I believe in the 12 startups listed below. These startups are innovating, thinking BIG and taking chances.

ReJoint, an entrepreneurial group in Italy is challenging the status quo.  This is the first startup to bring together all of the latest technologies for a better TKA product and service.  ReJoint is leveraging AI + 3D printing + wearables.  They are partnering with Enhatch for the Fit2Kit algorithm. ReJoint offers thousand of sizes for each patient (any combination of lateral and medial geometries), but in the end, only one (the perfect fit) is shipped to the surgery.  Think no-overhand or under-hang for femoral and tibial bone coverage.  First-in-man surgeries are scheduled for early 2019.
