By integrating computers into the surgical suite, OrthoSensor is leading the evolution of a new field: intelligent orthopedic surgery.
Until now, surgeons lacked quantifiable data about joint load, alignment, balance, and post-operative recovery. Decisions about these functions varied based on an individual surgeon’s judgment, experience and skill set. OrthoSensor’s portfolio of intelligent implants and monitoring systems will change this paradigm. Surgeons, hospitals and healthcare providers will now have access to real-time data—during and after the joint replacement procedure—to improve patient care, measure clinical outcomes, and lower costs related to implant failures and osteoporosis.
OrthoSensor has created a line of intelligent, low-cost and easy-to-use systems that will extend from the operating room throughout the lifecycle of the implanted orthopedic device. The Company’s products will be used in knee, hip and shoulder replacement procedures, as well as in spinal and trauma applications. Its proprietary technologies and applications will also allow remote monitoring of orthopedic implant function and patients’ musculoskeletal health.
OrthoSensor has three product platforms:
- OrthoSensor™ Surgical: Accurate, low cost, and easy-to-use surgical products will include dynamic load balancing and alignment solutions, which will reduce early revisions and increase implant life.
- OrthoSensor™ Implantables: Will use precise, low-cost implantable sensor systems to monitor numerous parameters throughout the life cycle of the implant.
- OrthoSensor™ Analytics: Deliver evidence-based medicine by capturing implant data and linking it to patients, physicians, and procedures.
