Are you a patient with painful knee osteoarthritis below the age of 65 years? Return to your active life after a six weeks treatment with the KneeReviver.


The KneeReviver unloads the damaged knee joint by putting the knee joint surfaces on a short distance. With this temporary unloading treatment the knee joint tissues regenerate.

For whom

Patients diagnosed with knee osteoarthritis, not responding to conservative therapy, probably already indicated for a knee replacement, under the age of 65 years old.


This unloading treatment is studied in medical research groups for > 10 years, resulting in knee joint preservation, decrease of pain, increase of function, and postponing a knee replacement.

Postponing the need for total knee replacement,

avoiding complex revision surgery

The KneeReviver

  • Consists of 2 tubes placed on both sides of the knee
  • Is fixated to the bone by eight bone pins
  • Unloads the knee joint by creating space between the joint surfaces
  • It is allowed to bear weight during treatment, however it is not possible to bend the knee

The Knee Reviver is developed by ArthroSave, in collaboration with orthopaedic surgeons, researchers and patients. It is the only device with intended use for knee joint distraction.

ArthroSave attends the AGA congress in Vienna

The AGA is Europe’s largest society for arthroscopy. The “AGA – SOCIETY FOR ARTHROSCOPY AND JOINT SURGERY” is Europe’s largest specialist society for arthroscopy with currently more than 5,600 members.

Founded in Zurich in 1983 as the AGA German-speaking working group for arthroscopy as an association of visionary, German-speaking surgeons and orthopedists with the aim of establishing and further developing arthroscopy as a new, minimally invasive procedure.

ArthroSave in LoaD consortium Erasmus MC

The Dutch organization for scientific research (NWO) has awarded a major grant within the framework of the national health agenda (NWA) to a consortium coordinated by the Erasmus MC.

Osteoarthritis is a painful, debilitating joint disease that affects millions of people and for which there is no curative treatment. Patients are encouraged to keep moving, but the optimal joint load for the individual patient is not known. In the LoaD project, researchers from medical centers, technical universities, universities of applied sciences and companies are working together to investigate what a healthy load is for a patient with knee osteoarthritis and how patients can be guided to exercise healthly.

Budget: 10 million euros co-funded by companies and social partners such as sports associations and patient associations.

The consortium is led by Erasmus MC and consists of over 30 partner organisations.
