DePuy to incorporate wearable tech into total knee replacements
Johnson & Johnson’s DePuy Synthes is linking up with 360 Knee Systems, an Australian developer of digital solutions for personalizing total knee replacements, including the construction of 3D models for virtual surgery planning, wearable devices and mapping patients’ kinetic movement.
In addition, 360 Knee Systems’s software can provide rehabilitation, exercise plans and patient monitoring following the procedure, as well as telemedicine support.
Under the license agreement, the platform will be made available with DePuy’s Attune knee replacement system in Australia and New Zealand. Financial details were not disclosed
