About


A clinically proven implant1 offering a wide range of fixation, bearing philosophy and surface coatings. Uniglide’s versatility along with simple instrumentation and long-term clinical success1 form a suitable solution for surgeons and patients.

Kinematic driven design

Kinematic driven design


The Uniglide femur is designed with a functional curvature to mimic the native femoral condyle:

  • A single radius in the active flexion arc
  • Anatomical fit with a larger anterior radius and smaller posterior radius
Secure fixation

Secure fixation


  • Femoral component designed with two pegs and a keel to prevent malrotation.
  • Tibial keel with AP and keel depth adjustment with respect to the tibia size designed for both cemented and cementless fixation.
Ultra low wear

Ultra low wear


Uniglide optimises UKR performance through TiN ceramicised surface technology:

  • 60% reduction in wear2 
  • 80% reduction in metal ion release3
Biomimetic Cementless Technology

Biomimetic Cementless Technology


Uniglide cementless implants contains dual layered ultra-thin coating:

  • Titanium plasma spray coating designed to increase surface roughnessand contact area for long term fixation
  • Highly dissolvable thin layer of calcium phosphate coating designed to encourage fast bone ongrowth5
