Personalised End to End Knee Replacement Surgery

Sensoria Health External Link, developer of Internet of Things (IoT) for the Human Body, Internet of Me (IoMe), and AI software solutions that improve patient's lives, will be announcing the first end-to-end knee replacement surgery experience, the Sensoria Health Remote Patient Rehab System, featuring the new Sensoria Smart Knee Brace, Sensoria Sock v2.0 embedded with textile pressure sensors and Sensoria® Core microelectronics, Remote Monitoring Cloud and Mobile Apps. The Sensoria Health Rehab System monitors knee range of motion, patient balance, repetitions, adherence 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. For more information see the IDTechEx report on Wearable Technology Forecasts 2019-2029.
Made of soft neoprene, the new Sensoria Health Smart Knee Brace can baseline the patient before surgery, and along with the washable smart socks, remotely monitors post-op rehab for optimal recovery time and results.
By 2030, 11 Million Americans will Have Knee or Hip Replacement Surgery
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 individuals (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 quality 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 revision 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 Rehab System, patients undergoing TKR surgery will have better surgical outcomes, shorter rehab and recovery times and a more vibrant life with less pain and increased mobility."

Personalized Medicine Partnership with REJOINT for Prosthetic Knee Replacement
Sensoria Health is also announcing 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. 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 (Italy), 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 United States. For more information see the IDTechEx report on 3D Printing Materials 2019-2029: Technology and Market Analysis.
Each REJOINT knee will come bundled with the Sensoria Patient Rehab System to provide patients and clinicians and end-to-end personalized experience and reduce time to full recovery.
Software and Sensor Infused IoT Footwear, Apparel, & Accessories
Sensoria Health will also be announcing availability of its unique healthcare SDK and IoMe device that can enable multiple clinical patient monitoring scenarios. The SDK includes a HIPAA compliant cloud system and Sensoria® Core mission-specific adapter designed to connect to sensor-infused footwear and garments.
The Sensoria Health Remote Patient Rehab System will be available Q2 2020 through medical professionals and online, with pricing to be determined. For more information about Sensoria Health, see the website: External Link.
