About The KneeKG

KneeKG™ is a personalized knee assessment device generating actionable data and insight regarding the joint’s movement while weight-bearing. It enables data-driven, personalized therapies based on the cause of symptoms, not just the pain.

This device is supported by over 100 peer reviewed publications in clinical and fundamental research including two studies published at the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), demonstrating the ability to deliver better outcomes while reducing costs and optimizing the care plan and time involved with patients. For the millions annual knee consultations, our vision is to transform the complete knee care process making it more efficient with better outcomes while driving new patients and revenues at a lower cost.

KneeKG™ is a patented knee assessment system that measures knee kinematics for clinical evaluation of gait impairment or alteration resulting from :

  1. Knee Osteoarthritis
  2. Ligament/meniscus injuries
  3. Tendinitis
  4. Patellofemoral pain syndrome
  5. Surgery of the knee

KneeKG™ provides precise and reliable measurements of knee motion and identifies deficiencies in gait, which in turn helps personalize and optimize treatment plans and enhances patient care before and after surgery or conservative care intervention.


A technician or therapist performs a 15-minute test, after which the KneeKG™ generates an easy-to-read report of findings. More expensive X-rays and MRIs only provide a static image of the knee and provide no information on actual function.



3D Test

Quantifies 3D knee kinematic and monitors biomechanical markers link with knee pathologie

Fast

Takes 25 minutes for 1 knee assessment and 45 minutes for bilateral

Real-Time

Generates an automatic, easy-to-read report of findings

Dynamic

Assesses knee joint function in dynamic movement

Simple

Constitutes a user-friendly, fast and objective clinical tool

Valid

Supported by over 100 peer reviewed publications in clinical and fundamental research


Physicians

3d knee joint function assessment: Emovi offers educational programs for physicians.

The KneeKG™provides key information to help guide and personalize the treatment plan by identifying the causes of symptoms. It is the only medical device capable of rapidly and accurately assessing knee joint function in a clinical setting.


Emovi offers interactive educational programs with objective to enable physicians to do the following :

  • Identify patients for the KneeKG™ test
  • Understand knee mechanical deficits linked to knee problems
  • Identify the right treatment at the right time to address the causes of symptoms in patients, not just the pain
While doctors emphasize the need for tools to better guide the treatment plan for knee pathologies, patients are unsatisfied with the prescribed care pathway as it mainly focuses on pain relief. A global therapeutic approach assessing and addressing the mechanical causes of the symptoms can help overcome these dissatisfactions.



Treat the causes not just the symptoms

Clinicians base their diagnosis on observations, manual tests. medical imaging and the patients history. However, these are static assessments usually done while the knee is not in weight-bearing condition. Since symptoms chiefly manifest themselves when the knee is in movement, it is difficult to understand the origin of the problem.

Medical imaging is mainly used to confirm clinician's diagnosis impressions; however radiographic conclusions don't correlate well with the patient's symptoms. Furthermore, they do not provide information allowing physicians to personalize the treatment plan to address the causes behind the symptoms.

Faced with the current clinical limitations, practitioners insist on the need for new tools to help guide the treatment plan. They become essential for better patient management and follow up.

Offers clinical reports highlighting mechanical problems and providing insight to healthcare professionals on potentially related causes to help guide the treatment plan.

Assesses mechanical factors associated with the progression of certain pathologies or conditions (ex. osteoarthritis).

Offers a deeper understanding of the impact of knee injuries in order to correct related mechanical problem and prevent secondary injuries.

Assesses knee joint function in dynamic movement and in weight-bearing condition.

Enables close monitoring of the patient during the treatment plan.

Due to the influence of biomechanical changes on osteoarthritis (OA) progression, the type and the degree of abnormality should be included in the definition of OA since they may influence treatment outcome.

Biomechanics and kinematics contribute to the development of early osteoarthritis following joint injury or surgery and should be assessed.

Better treatment adherence via a better understanding of what her/his mechanical issues.

Improves the overall quality of life and satisfaction.

Receives a tailored treatment plan based on a functional 3D assessment.

May delay and even avoid surgery.

Reduces the number of unnecessary and costly imaging exams.

Reduces the use of some medications.

Faulty joint mechanics is often the underlying cause of the development and progression of pathologies, such as in knee osteoarthritis.

Need to understand the adaptations and impacts of an injury on joint mechanics in order to implement a personalized treatment.

Need for an objective clinical measurement to adequately quantify the joint function.

Greater therapeutic attention to the important role of mechanical factors in OA etiopatholgenesis is required if we are to find ways of reducing the public health impact of this condition.

Need to produce a valid and precise assessment during the treatment phase.
