Share on Facebook
NYU Langone Medical Center in New York announced that its orthopedic surgeons and researchers are among the first to start using a new device, called OrthoSensor, to provide real-time data about positioning, balance and tension of ligaments during total knee replacement surgery.

The device incorporates sensors, microelectronics and wireless communication to provide the data.

Researchers at NYU Langone's Hospital for Joint Diseases are also using to the device to develop guidelines for best arthroscopic surgical treatment of specific knee injuries, as well as create a unique database and testing lab that may be useful for the development of future knee replacement devices.
