The K-Scan Joint Analysis System utilizes paper-thin sensors to provide accurate data for objective, quantified analysis of joint function. It measures pressure, force, and contact area between adjacent articulating bones to provide a better understanding of how they are functioning, articulating, and loading.
The sensors listed below are standard sensors for systems. If you don't see a sensor that fits your needs, contact us. Custom capabilities are available.
Key K-Scan Applications Include:
A recent study published using human cadaveric shoulders stated, 'Tekscan sensors are highly accurate and can collect data points continuously in real time, thereby allowing the fixation techniques to be studied over time.1' Read the full article here.

This free eBook, Joint Function Research Successes with Pressure Mapping, shares several head-to-toe research successes utilizing K-Scan technology.
A Tekscan system consists of scanning electronics, software and patented thin-film sensors.
Additional items may be included with your system purchase.
The software is available in several languages including Spanish, French and German.

Joint biomechanics research is complex, often requiring multiple technologies to collect the data you need. Now you can access multiple types of technologies in one platform.
The simVITRO team at the BioRobotics Lab developed LabVIEW drivers with the ability to synchronize Evolution and VersaTek electronics (i.e. F-Scan, I-Scan, K-Scan, etc.) and/or other third party system data, such as motion capture and robotics. For compatibility and additional information about an optimized hardware configuration, contact the BioRobotics Lab.
Additionally, the drivers are compatible with the simVITRO system for robotically controlled anatomical joint testing. Gather insights into joint pressures with an easy to use robot designed to simulate real movements. Learn more
