VERASENSE™ Sensor-Assisted Total Knee Arthroplasty
VERASENSE enables surgeons to quantify ligament balance by giving them real-time, evidence-based data during primary and revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA). This disposable, intelligent device delivers data wirelessly to an intra-operative monitor that enables surgeons to make informed decisions regarding implant position and soft-tissue releases to improve balance and stability through a full range of motion. This monitor – the LinkStation MINI – displays intraoperative data on a high definition tablet screen, mounted to a rolling stand that is designed for easy navigation around the operating room, while occupying minimal space in the OR.
Improper soft tissue balance or imprecise implant positioning may result in stiffness, pain, instability and limited range of motion. This may result in premature implant failure and the need for revision surgery in the future.1-4 Learn about our definition of balance.
OrthoSensor is proud to have partnered with leading joint replacement companies, Smith & Nephew®, Stryker® and Zimmer Biomet, allowing VERASENSE to be utilized in more total knee replacement procedures around the world. To learn more about VERASENSE, visit our Product Information page.
