As a leading company in China's orthopedic implant industry, AK Medical has successively obtained NMPA registration certificates for metal 3D printed implants (Hip Joint System, Artificial Vertebral System, Intervertebral Fusion System). In August 2015, the 3D ACT Artificial Hip Joint System was clinically verified and was approved for marketing, and all relevant core technologies have independent intellectual property rights.
The ITI (Image To Implant) technology platform launched by AK Medical is another innovation in the field of 3D printing and digitalization: comprehensive preoperative planning allows doctors to know the possible risks during the operation in advance, which shortens the operation time, improves the accuracy of the operation, and also provides an effective guarantee for the safety of the patient.
In the past ten years, based on 3D ACT technology, AK Medical has successively completed artificial atlantoaxial vertebrae (artificial vertebrae), cervical vertebrae, multi-segment thoracolumbar vertebrae, artificial elbow joint, artificial wrist joint, total knee joint, full sacrum, half pelvis (sacral iliac joint to pubic bone) and many other personalized design prosthesis replacements, which provides surgeons with anatomical reconstruction solutions based on the concept of precision medicine. This provides doctors and patients with wings of imagination, and finally becomes reality!
It is the long-term strategic goal of AK Medical to becomes a leader in orthopedic field in China. In 2018, through the acquisition of a UK company JRI Orthopaedics Ltd, AK Medical has taken an important step in artificial joint surface technology and overseas market expansion; the acquisition of a Medtronic company, Beijing Libeier Bio-engineering Institute Co., Ltd. at the beginning of 2020 is another major move in the field of spine and trauma.
Beijing AK Medical Co., Ltd. was established in 2003 and is a core subsidiary of AK Medical Holdings Ltd., listed on the Main Board of Hong Kong Stock Market.
For more than ten years, AK has been committed to providing services that exceed customer expectations, focusing its main business on the orthopedic implant industry and the application of 3D printing technology in orthopedics, especially focusing on research and development, production and sales of artificial joint, auxiliary devices and emerging technologies in related fields. In the field of traditional artificial joint, a full series of product lines such as primary hip and knee joint, severe deformity, complex lesions, and revision joint have been formed, providing a full range of overall solutions for clinical applications.
ITI Medical Equipment Co., Ltd. was established in March 2016. It is a wholly-owned subsidiary funded by AK Medical Holdings Ltd., with a registered capital of 13.2 million US dollars, a total investment of 39.6 million US dollars, and a total construction area of 35,000 square meters.
ITI Medical mainly manufactures Class III medical devices, including orthopedic artificial joints and their auxiliary products, as well as oral and related biomaterial products. It is a high-tech enterprise focusing on the research and development, production, sales and service of artificial joints and supporting surgical instruments. After the plant is completed, it will have an annual production capacity of 500,000 to 600,000 sets of artificial joints, and become one of the largest artificial joint production bases in Asia and even the whole world.
JRI Orthopaedics was formed in 1970 by orthopaedic surgeon Ronald Furlong to introduce the Müller cemented hip to the UK market and, in 1977, manufacturing of hip implants and instrumentation was established in Sheffield.
From the start, JRI has been committed to bringing the best people to deliver the best solutions in joint reconstruction, repair and regeneration.
In 1985, JRI became the first company to produce a hip implant with a Hydroxyapatite coating enabling a biological bond with the patient’s bone and so the prospect of a hip for life.
The Furlong H-A.C coated hip stem was a significant innovation in joint replacement. Since its first implantation, over 250,000 patients have benefited from this technology and, to this day, it has possibly the lowest revision rate at 10 years recorded on the National Joint Registry (NJR).
Today JRI is more than just a hip company – although we offer a complete portfolio of implants and instrumentation providing a variety of solutions from primary through to complex revision.
