Capture Objective and Quantifiable Data for Joint Function Analysis

The ultra-thin K-Scan™ sensors provide accurate data and quantified analysis of joint function. The system measures pressure, force and contact area between adjacent articulating bones to provide a better understanding of how they are functioning, articulating and loading.  There are endless applications with multiple sensor designs that allow for various types of joint analysis, such as shoulder, wrist, knee, ankle, and more.

Versatile Applications

  • Determine loading force, pressure, and contact area
  • Provide data for dynamic and finite stress analysis
  • Study implant design and articulating joints
  • View and assess the impact of various joint compartment geometries
  • Perform cadaveric joint studies on the knee, ankle, wrist, hip, elbow, and shoulder
  • Assess the design or evaluate the function of the artificial joints
