Consensus Orthopedics' wearable aims to improve total knee replacements — 3 key notes

El Dorado Hills, Calif.-based Consensus Orthopedics created the TracPatch to help providers monitor a patient's post-total knee replacement recovery.

Here's what you should know:

1. The TracPatch is a wearable piece of technology placed on a patient's leg below the joint line. The patch collects and transmits range-of-motion, ambulation, exercise compliance and wound site temperature metrics to providers for up to six weeks after surgery.

2. The device can be used before a surgery to monitor activity levels and range-of-motion.

3. The device is currently only used for TKR, but Consensus Orthopedics anticipates expanding it to other total joint procedures, as well as other surgical knee procedures.
