Aligned with the ongoing transformation of Zimmer Biomet’s business, key recent highlights include:
- U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for the Persona® OsseoTi® Keel Tibia for cementless knee replacement. Persona OsseoTi is the latest addition to the clinically proven Persona Knee System, and features a new porous version of the Persona anatomic tibia with Zimmer Biomet’s OsseoTi Porous Metal Technology, offering a comprehensive single system solution for a cementless or cemented application.
- Presentation of one-year data from a multicenter, prospective, randomized controlled trial to evaluate the impact of mymobility® with Apple Watch, a first-of-its-kind remote care management platform. The data show that using mymobility with Apple Watch following primary knee arthroplasty can effectively guide rehabilitation, demonstrate similar outcomes to traditional care models, and significantly reduce the number of outpatient physical therapy visits. In addition, use of mymobility with Apple Watch was associated with significantly fewer surgery-related emergency department visits, which could translate to lower costs of care.
- Reached a definitive agreement to acquire Embody, Inc., a privately-held medical device company focused on soft tissue healing, to include Embody’s complete portfolio of collagen-based biointegrative solutions to support healing in the most challenging orthopedic soft tissue injuries – including the TAPESTRY® biointegrative implant for tendon healing and TAPESTRY® RC, one of the first arthroscopic implant systems for rotator cuff repair. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to be completed in February 2023.
