Knee Joint Pressures Case Study

APPLICATION: KNEE JOINT PRESSURES
CUSTOMER: LENOX HILL HOSPITAL

Challenge

  • Lenox Hill needed to measure pressures of knee joints when flexed.

Solution

  • PPS delivered custom 24-elements Digitacts sensors for both medial and lateral sides.

  • These sensors were not only flexible for multi-curved surface of knee joints but could also withstand the relatively high pressures of this application.

Benefit

  • Lenox Hill was able to collect valuable pressure data at knee joints
    with different weights and flexing positions.
