On the Runway

On a Friday afternoon, Dax Strohmeyer was sitting on the runway at Chicago’s O’Hare airport when he got an urgent text. A doctor needed a custom knee implant replacement immediately. 

One of the doctors’ patients, a woman who had received a custom knee implant manufactured by Triangle, was in a serious car accident and the implant was displaced. Surgery was scheduled for Monday morning. Could Dax and the team at Triangle replace the custom knee?

Dax contacted the Triangle team and they sprang into action. They coordinated with the client to create a new model based on the patient’s MRI results. The team worked through the weekend to perfect the model, fine tune the implant and deliver the knee system by Monday morning.

Triangle and their client made it happen…the patient received her new knee that day!
