OrthoSensor received FDA 510(k) clearance for its Verasense Sensor-Assisted Technology to be used with Zimmer Biomet's Persona Knee System for total knee replacement.

Here are three things to know:

1. OrthoSensor develops sensor-assisted technologies for total knee replacement.

2. Verasense is designed to help surgeons improve knee balance and customize implant position during surgery by using intraoperative sensor data.

3. In a prospective multicenter study, the use of Verasense was demonstrated to reduce postoperative pain, improve functional outcomes and increase patient satisfaction scores. Almost all — 98 percent — of patients whose knees were balanced using Verasense reported being satisfied to very satisfied at three years postoperatively.
