DANIA BEACH, Fla., March 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- OrthoSensor, Inc. a leader in sensor-assisted technology today announced its participation at the 2019 American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, NV from March 12-16, booth #434. OrthoSensor will be introducing new proven data about the clinical and economic advantages for surgeons and hospitals with the use of VERASENSE Sensor -Assisted for Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA), its leading product.
Clinical highlights include:
VERASENSE helps surgeons balance knees:
Without VERASENSE, surgeons are only able to balance the knee approximately 50% of the time.1
Using VERASENSE, results are significantly better (more than 90%).1
Quantifiably balanced knees perform significantly better clinically in many patient reported outcomes following TKA:
Increased Satisfaction- 98% at 3-Years2
Improved Forgotten Joint Score1
Higher Range of Motion (ROM)3
Fewer postoperative manipulations for stiffness (MUA)4
Ivan Delevic, President and Chief Executive Officer of OrthoSensor said: "Our growing body of clinical evidence is proving that VERASENSE helps surgeons address soft tissue balance during TKA and improve patient reported outcomes. Our results also demonstrate VERASENSE can save as much as $725 per patient by lowering variable of post-operative and post-acute care."5
Stop by our booth #434 to learn more about VERASENSE sensor-assisted technology and its global expansion, and for demonstrations of:
OrthoLogIQ® - data-collection software that quantifies total joint data for the optimization of patient care
MotionSense™- an in-development wearable patient data-collection sensor*
Shoulder Sensor - an in-development intraoperative sensor for reverse shoulder arthroplasty**
* Not yet available for commercial sale. ** Not yet available for commercial sale and not cleared by the U.S. FDA
We will also have distinguished guest speakers at daily private luncheons during AAOS exhibit dates discussing the advantages of VERASENSE. Dr. Martin Roche, Chief Medical Officer of Orthosensor, will moderate luncheons. (RSVP).
