ConforMIS knee replacement systems are designed to reduce the risk of polyethylene wear
Polyethylene is important because it enables the articulation, or joint, of the implant components. On the tibia, the polyethylene sits on a metal platform and acts as the cushion between the tibia and femur. Polyethylene wear is one of the most common reasons for revision surgery

iPolyTM (GUR1020) is a time-tested polyethylene used in standard total knee systems for over 30 years. While maximizing contact area and conformity to the patient-specific femoral implant, iPolyTM has favorable wear rates and provides implant longevity.
VITAMIN-E HIGHLY CROSSLINKED POLYETHYLENE
iPolyTM XE (highly crosslinked vitamin-e infused UHMWPE) is the next generation of highly cross-linked polyethylene blended with Vitamin E.
iPolyTM XE is only available with iTotal® CR.
