Orthopedics

Orthopedic evaluations are used to determine the most appropriate treatment for musculoskeletal conditions or after an injury, to follow the evolution of rheumatic diseases, and to plan or evaluate a surgery. Our solutions facilitate and allow quantitative measurements for various of these evaluations. Data interpretation and normative data are specific for the following conditions:

Knee anterior cruciate ligament lesion
null

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) ensures knee stability during anterior translation and rotations. After an ACL injury, patients suffer from knee pain and knee instability, especially during physical activity. A ligament reconstruction may be considered. Despite the improvement of surgical techniques, return to sports at an optimal level is still a challenge.

Quantitative assessments of walking, running, jumping and balance abilities are essential to decide which therapeutic strategy to adopt, to ensure a post-operative follow-up, to prevent postoperative complications (recurrence of rupture, stiffness, early arthrosis), and to evaluate return to the safe level and  return to sport.

Our goals

null

Early assessment of jump, balance and running functions

Provide an assessment of return to sport readiness

Enable a better planning of sport training and rehabilitation strategies

Asymmetry

Stance time

null

Lower-limb power

Lower-limb power is reduced for the affected leg
null

Leg stiffness

Leg stiffness is reduced during running
Knee arthrosis and arthroplasty
null

Knee arthrosis is a degeneration of the knee joint surfaces causing joint pain and instability. Knee arthrosis leads to functional incapacities like standing, walking and other daily-life activities. When medication no longer suffices, a joint replacement can be put in place. The goal of rehabilitation after knee replacement surgery is to recover functional abilities and a better quality of life.

Evaluation of functional abilities (walking, sit-to-stand transfer, and balance functions) is imperative for assessing the progress of osteoarthritis, patients’ recovery after surgery, and complications. Our solutions allow easy and fast evaluations to better adjust therapeutic strategies to restore patients’ quality of life.

Hip arthrosis and arthroplasty
null

Hip arthrosis is a chronic disease affecting the integrity of the hip joint. The symptoms are characterized by joint pain, walking disorders (dislocation, claudication) and a limitation of functional activities. When medication is not sufficient enough, a hip replacement surgery can be performed. The objective of rehabilitation after hip replacement is to recover walking abilities and a good quality of life.

Evaluation of functional abilities (walking, sit-to-stand transfer, and balance functions) is imperative for assessing the progress of osteoarthritis, patients’ recovery after surgery, and complications. Our solution allows easy and fast evaluations to better adjust therapeutic strategies to restore patients’ quality of life.
