Zimmer Biomet revolutionised soft tissue fixation in Sports Medicine with the introduction of the JuggerKnot® Anchor platform in 2009 with the 1.4mm JuggerKnot. This award winning 100% suture based anchor system has quickly evolved into a family of anchors that offers the widest range of options for a multitude of different procedures.

  • Clinical Results: 1 study, performed with the 1.4mm anchor, demonstrated clinically improved patient outcomes and fibrous tissue complete bony healing or combined fibro-osseous healing in the anchor tunnel1
  • Versatile: Gain access to a robust soft anchor system , which includes 7 different size offerings and size specific instrumentation
  • Strong: Strength is equal to or greater than some anchors 2 or 3 times larger2 and high pull-out strength ranging from 20-120 lbs., depending on size of anchor3,4
