By integrating sensors into the surgical suite and developing smart implants, OrthoSensor is leading the evolution of a new orthopedic medical device market: intelligent orthopedic surgery.
The importance of proper ligament balance and implant alignment is well understood in clinical literature to maximize implant longevity. Joint instability and mal-alignment after implantation causes approximately 36% of all implant failures, burdening the patient and requiring high cost revision.
Until now, surgeons have lacked quantifiable data optimizing patient specific joint load, alignment, balance, post-operative recovery and implant management. Presently, decisions concerning these factors vary based on an individual surgeon’s judgment, experience and skill set.
OrthoSensor’s portfolio of intelligent surgical systems and implants will change this paradigm. Surgeons, hospitals and other healthcare providers will now have access to real-time data on joint kinematics – during and after the joint replacement procedures – to improve and maximize patient care, measure clinical outcomes, and lower costs related to implant failures and patients’ musculoskeletal health.
