Biomet Inc. and OrthoSensor entered a co-promotion partnership with Biomet’s Vanguard Complete Knee System and OrthoSensor’s Verasense.
A trial bearing designed for use with the Vanguard Complete Knee System, the OrthoSensor Verasense is embedded with sensors and microelectronics to provide surgeons with real-time knee kinetic data. By wirelessly transmitting information to a graphic display, Verasense allows surgeons to quantify soft tissue loads throughout the range of motion and enables the surgeon to make informed adjustments to the soft tissues and implant placement to allow for overall knee balancing.
“Combining Biomet’s Vanguard Knee System with Verasense takes knee replacement surgery to a new level of precision by providing surgeons with actionable, intraoperative data to quantify and verify that they balance a knee implant properly during total knee replacement surgery,” Jay Pierce, chief executive officer of OrthoSensor, stated in a company press release. “We are pleased to partner with Biomet and expand access to OrthoSensor’s technology for surgeons using the Vanguard system.”
