Wireless Systems and GUI
OrthoSensor’s Sensor Assisted Surgery platform provides kinematic data that monitors both soft tissue balancing and alignment. Sensor data is transmitted wirelessly via radio frequency (RF) telemetry to OrthoSensor’s external signal processing and monitoring system, informing the surgeon, hospital or patient.
Intra-operatively, OrthoSensor’s graphic user interface (GUI) displays real-time, dynamic feedback during surgery to quantify appropriate soft tissue gap balance. With OrthoSensor Intelligent Implantables—implant devices with embedded sensors—the system will facilitate ongoing assessment of the device’s load, stability, and overall functionality.
OrthoSensor’s technology platform will enable evidence-based orthopedic surgery and comparative effectiveness by streaming data from the surgical suite, physician’s office or the patient centered medical home. The ability to wirelessly transmit the data demonstrating optimal surgical techniques or the effectiveness of various treatment protocols will help enhance clinical outcomes, while reducing cost.
