The OrthoSensor Knee Trial is an intelligent trail designed to provide quantitative, intra-operative feedback, allowing surgeons to balance the joint during total knee arthroplasty. The Trial embeds micro-electronics and sensors in single-sue trial inserts to deliver data about the final ligament balance and joint kinematics specific to the patient's knee. The information is wirelessly transmitted for real-time feedback.
The Triathlon Knee System is designed for ligament balancing procedures.
