Many things including patient weight, activity level as well as the implant’s bearing surface technology, can affect the longevity of the implant. The bearing surface is defined as the two parts of the knee that glide together throughout motion.
Stryker’s advanced bearing technology, called X3®, has demonstrated a 96% decrease in wear in laboratory testing compared to competitive premium bearing technologies.1 Based on this testing, X3® Technology may result in a longer lasting implant. This technology is particularly important for younger patients.
