When you are getting a Total Knee Replacement (TKR), you want the best possible outcome for your surgery. A smart knee implant captures important information to help your physician understand how you are healing and what kind of progress you are making. Persona IQ is the first, and currently only smart implant available on the market.
The smart knee implant captures gait metrics including functional knee range of motion (ROM), step count, and sampled average walking speed, Persona IQ allows physicians and care teams to collect patient-specific data during the course of patient monitoring. This information can be used to help improve surgical outcomes and provide better patient care.
Not only does Persona IQ provide important data points for your physician, but it is also easy to use. The sensors are embedded into the total knee implant at the time of surgery. The data collected by the sensors is transmitted wirelessly to a secure web portal (MyMobility) where it can be accessed by you and your care team.
During your initial recovery, this information can be used to determine how you are progressing through the MyMobility web portal. If you are not progressing as expected, your physician can make necessary changes to your rehabilitation protocol.
Improving Patient Outcomes
The technology is similar to that of a pacemaker. The battery is estimated to last approximately 20 years. It is the hope that with these types of implants, it will be easier to detect problematic implants before they become symptomatic.
The Importance of Gait Metrics
Gait metrics are important because they give your physician insight into how well you are healing and what kind of progress you are making. By understanding your gait, your physician can make necessary adjustments to your rehabilitation plan to ensure that you heal properly and avoid any complications. Additionally, gait metric data can be used to compare outcomes across different surgical techniques or implant types.
Gait Metrics Collected:
- Knee Range of Motion
- Step Count
- Stride Length
- Walking Distance
- Walking Speed
PersonaIQ’s Unique Features:
– persona IQ is the only smart knee implant on the market that captures gait metrics
– personaIQ’s sensors are safe and embedded into the total knee implant
– Persona IQ transmits data wirelessly to a secure web portal where it can be accessed by you and your care team.
