X-Ray Assistive Device for Standardizing the Knee Templating Process
TS-054471 — Knee templating is used as part of the pre-operative planning for knee replacement to determine the best fit for an implant. The current assistive devices used to determine fit are unreliable and inaccurate for proper patient fit. A new device is suggested to overcome these limitations.
Over 600,000 knee replacements are performed per year. As part of the pre-operative planning for surgery, x-ray images are taken to determine the proper fit for the implant. Even with the use of a calibration ball, this knee templating procedure remains inaccurate and unreliable for a number of re…
