Dear Doctor,

The development of the ÆQUOS G1 joint heralds a new era in the field of knee endoprosthetics.

The geometry of the ÆQUOS G1 joint replicates - for the first time in detail - the joint surfaces of the natural knee. The rolling-sliding motion of the knee joint, which is a key functional hallmark of a normal knee, is finally implemented in an endoprosthesis. The main advantages of the ÆQUOS G1 joint include rapid recovery of normal and pain-free gait, high stability and long-lasting durability.

In the following, we will discuss the central role that the morphology of curvature of the articulating surfaces plays for joint function.

Further below, the ÆQUOS G1 joint will be highlighted, including a discussion of its performance from engineering and clinical points of view.

We are happy to answer any questions you might have. We will also gladly get you in touch with our development experts in case you have more technical questions.

We hope you will enjoy discovering the exciting ideas behind this breakthrough product in the following few pages.

Yours sincerely,
ÆQUOS Endoprothetik GmbH
