The Sensoria Health Rehab System monitors knee range of motion, patient balance, repetitions, adher-ence and other biometric and physiological parameters (i.e. KOOS score) proven to reduce rehab time, pain, risk of requiring additional corrective surgeries, and increase patient mobility.
Made of soft neoprene, the new Sensoria Health Smart Knee Brace can baseline the patient before sur-gery, and along with the washable smart socks, remotely monitors post-op rehab for optimal recovery time and results.
According to the National Institutes of Health, at the end of this decade, by 2030, about 11 million Americans will have hip or knee replacement surgery, making them the nation’s most common elective surgical procedures. Researchers attribute the increase in joint replacement surgeries to aging baby boomers, higher rates of diagnosis, treatments for arthritis, demands for improved mobility, and younger individuals undergoing these procedures, coupled with improvements in life expectancy. Most patients will outlive their implants and require expensive revision surgeries. The majority of the indi-viduals (70%) who have undergone total hip or knee replacement surgery are alive today.
“In 2020, one million Americans will go through Total Knee Replacement (TKR) surgery. We are excited to partner with REJOINT to provide our new Remote Patient Rehab System and help resolve a true qual-ity of life issue. Up until now, TKR procedures did not offer personalization and were often subject to side effects, such as pain, re-hospitalization, and reduced patient mobility,” said Davide Vigano, CEO, Sensoria Health. “It is estimated that over 500,000 adults living with knee implants have undergone re-vision surgeries. Even as the number of knee replacements and corrective surgeries have increased, safety assurances to protect patients have remained limited. With Sensoria Health’s Remote Patient Re-hab System, patients undergoing TKR surgery will have better surgical outcomes, shorter rehab and re-covery times and a more vibrant life with less pain and increased mobility.”
Sensoria Health is also announcing at CES 2020 a partnership with REJOINT, who is developing the first personalized prosthetic knee under an innovation grant by the European Commission. REJOINT and Sensoria Health will showcase and announce the first personalized 3D printed and personalized knee replacement prosthetic device at CES. Custom designed for each patient and made of cobalt chrome, the new implantable prosthetic device is developed with innovative Formula One Racing-derived additive manufacturing techniques, built in Bologna, close to the Ferrari and Lamborghini headquarters. The new prosthetic knee is undergoing clinical validation at Humanitas in Milan (Italy) by Prof. Maurilio Marcacci, and will be available in 2021 in Europe and the US.
