TKA Femoral Packaging Receives Global Recognition
Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) Femoral implant packaging continues to receive recognition for its innovative packaging materials and designs in the U.S. and now worldwide. Since Arthrex's TKA Femoral implant packaging won the AmeriStar Award in 2013, it went on to be entered in the WorldStar Awards competition in December, which is the international competition for packaging designs for all industries.
WorldStar Awards are presented only to those packages that have already won recognition in a national competition. An expert panel of 25 judges selects the winning package based on it being superior in its own right, and better in its class in execution or innovation compared to similar packages from around the world.
Out of the 249 entries received from 35 countries, there were 139 winners in different categories. Even more impressive, Arthrex's award was the only winner from the U.S. in the medical device industry! The official awards ceremony will be held during the InterPack Convention in Dusseldorff, Germany in May.
Arthrex's iBalance TKA Instrument and Implant System is set to be released soon.
