OrthoSensor: Two new sensors are in the pipeline
OrthoSensor said it’s working on MotionSense, a wearable sensor for patient data collection, and Shoulder Sensor, an intraoperative sensor for reverse shoulder arthroplasty. Neither is commercially available, and Shoulder Sensor hasn’t received FDA clearance.
But the Dania Beach, Fla.-based company had news about the performance of its Verasense sensor-assisted device cleared in June 2018 for use with Zimmer Biomet‘s Persona knee system during total knee replacement procedures. Verasense device uses advanced sensors and wireless connectivity to analyze knee balance and improve outcomes, OrthoSensor said.
“Our growing body of clinical evidence is proving that Verasense helps surgeons address soft tissue balance during TKA and improves patient-reported outcomes,” said OrthoSensor president & CEO Ivan Delevic in a prepared statement. “Our results also demonstrate Verasense can save as much as $725 per patient by lowering variable of post-operative and post-acute care.”
