Knee Injury Assessment
FAQ for Patients
FAQ about the KneeKG™ System
Knee injury assessment with the KneeKG™ System takes about 30 minutes for one knee and 45 minutes for two knees.
A knee assessment with the KneeKG™ System requires two visits.
During your first visit, your Knee Kinesiography will take place. The results will then be analyzed.
During the second visit, a clinician will explain your knee injury assessment results and show you specific exercises based on your results.
If you wear orthotics, bring them with your shoes. Please also note that you should:
- Bring a pair of shorts and a pair of light socks;
- Not apply any cream on your knee or your thigh on the day of the exam.
You will not be able to take the knee injury assessment if you:
- Have a knee that blocks or has acute knee pain or acute swelling of the knee due to a recent trauma;
- Or, if you cannot walk for 5 to 10 minutes on the treadmill at a comfortable pace without holding the handles due to:
- An important balance problem;
- A severe limp while walking;
- The need to wear a brace, a cane or a walker to be able to walk;
- Recent surgery or knee injection (cortisone, visco-supplementation, or platelet-rich plasma) that still cause severe pain or swelling.
If you think that you will not be able to take the test for any of these reasons or any other, simply notify the clinic.
