Whether studying joint function and loading or investigating the design function of implants and prostheses, K-Scan™ provides objective data for quantified analysis.
For those who want more than the present limited means of obtaining bio-mechanical information, the K-Scan system is the key to objective quantified measures to support treatment success providing more information than other imaging or measurement systems.
K-Scan sensors are inserted into the joints between adjacent articulating bones to measure pressures, forces and contact areas. The interface data provides a better understanding on how the contact surface of articulating bones are functioning, moving, and loading.
See how researchers at the Cleveland Clinic use K-Scan in their BioRobotics Lab in the video above.
Tekscan's joint analysis system can be found in clinical and research settings worldwide. The system is available with different data connectivity and sensor choices. Learn more about the different K-Scan™ options and configurations available!
Numerous articles have been published regarding K-Scan™’s research applications. Tekscan has compiled a list of these research publications in our Medical Bibliography.
