83% reduction in long-term wear for JRI Orthopaedics HXLPE

Clinical evidence is critical to the safety and success of the implants that JRI Orthopaedics manufacture every day, and patient satisfaction is the key measure.

We are very pleased to share this clinical paper (see link below) that shows an 83% reduction in long term wear after bedding in for JRI Orthopaedics HXLPE compared to conventional PE (0.12 vs 0.02mm).
