The ultra-thin K-Scan™ sensors provide accurate data and quantified analysis of joint function. These ultra-thin sensors are available in various sizes, designs, and configurations for versatility and ease of use.
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 for various types of joint research, such as shoulder, wrist, knee, ankle, and more.
