In this study, 117 patients who had received the e.motion FP prosthesis between 2001 and 2003 were followed up for 5.5 years to assess the clinical and radiological outcomes and survival of this mobile platform prosthesis. As this design is intended to improve the mobility of the replaced knee, particular emphasis was placed on the clinical and functional results. The hypothesis was that they would be comparable to the excellent results reported in the literature of state-of-the-art total knee arthroplasty. After 66 months, the average Knee Society clinical and functional scores were 93.8 points (KSS-C) and 90.5 (KSS-F) points, respectively. The clinical and radiographical results were excellent, with a low rate of anterior knee pain of 2.3 %.
