Description of intervention(s) / exposure
This study is a post-market, prospective study to monitor and evaluate the intended performance and ongoing safety of the Apex Knee System manufactured by Omni Life Science and Global Orthopaedic Technology following a primary total knee arthroplasty.

It follows the investigators standard practice for a total knee arthroplasty. The surgical duration will be the same as for a routine total knee arthroplasty surgery. All participants will be clinically assessed using standard functional parameters measuring range of movement pre-operatively, three months post-operatively, 1 year, and 2 years.
