Duration of Triathalon Total Knee Unit

Need some clear information about duration ( life expectancy) of units I have in my "knees"!
Have two total knee replacements since 2008. No problems at all, in fact I ski everyday and walk +10K everyday!

No one seems to be able to tell me how long these units will last! The Stryker staff do not want to give me a clear answer! My physicians does not know,,seems we are the "first generation" persons with such units!
I am young,,only 69, active and wish to ski till I am +90!

I want to know how I can prolong life of these great units ( no pain, no issues, just great great skiing)

Anyone more "advised' than me!
