The durability of knee implants depends on many things including patient weight and activity level, as well as the implant’s bearing surface technology.
Improved Wear Performance
The bearing surface is defined as the two parts of the knee that glide together throughout motion. Stryker’s new, advanced bearing technology, called X3®, has demonstrated up to 96% decrease in wear in laboratory testing compared to competitive premium bearing technologies.* This decrease in wear may extend the life of your knee implant. This new technology is particularly important for younger patients.
Ask your doctor if X3® technology is right for you.
