UNIUM™ System Launched by DePuy Synthes

UNIUM System is the newest addition to DePuy Synthes’ expansive power tool line-up. DePuy Synthes is an orthopedics subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson.

Ergonomics, reliability, and efficiency were key considerations throughout the design of the system, and it is suitable for use across a wide range of surgical procedures including small bones, sports medicine, spine, and thorax.

The number and complexity of small bone and trauma surgeries have increased over the years. Consequently, there is a need for devices that are reliable, robust, compact and ergonomic, to address fundamental requirements.

In addition, users need to be able to operate with compact designs to increase surgical precision and to reduce musculoskeletal stress and trauma on the orthopedic surgeon. They also need adequate battery capacity to avoid the need for intraoperative battery changes, and multifunctional systems that can accommodate different surgical needs.

Funda Haine, Woldwide Vice President, Power Tools, DePuy Synthes, said:

“The UNIUM System significantly enhances our power tools portfolio. We listened closely to input from surgeons and staff, and designed the UNIUM System to meet their precise needs. We are filling an unmet need with the UNIUM Power Tool by developing a system that is 19% lighter, 26% smaller in height and 18% more powerful than its predecessors, allowing care teams to focus more of their attention on the patient.”

The UNIUM System is made up of two handpieces – the modular device and the reciprocating saw – as well as a comprehensive set of attachments and tools. Included in the system is an innovative and intuitive power unit (incorporating a high-capacity Li-ion battery, as well as an electronic control unit). This is used to drive both handpieces. This power unit has been designed to survive more than 1,000 uses and recharge cycles, helping to extend its lifespan and reduce costs associated with waste and repairs.

“The UNIUM System is designed to provide surgeons with an ergonomically advanced option to help them deliver a high level of care. We are excited to launch this system, which we believe will provide surgeons with confidence and control in both the hospital and ambulatory surgical center settings, enabling them to reach even more patients.”
