Provides a better understanding of how the contact surfaces of articulating bones are functioning and loading.
See how researchers at the Cleveland Clinic use K-Scan™ in their BioRobotics Lab in this video from their YouTube channel.
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.
