Zimmer Biomet debuts AI-powered tool for postoperative care

Orthopedic

Zimmer Biomet's WalkAI tool for postoperative recovery was launched, the devicemaker said March 10.

WalkAI uses an artificial intelligence model to identify patients who may have a lower gait speed 90 days after hip or knee surgery, according to a news release. It is the devicemaker's first AI-based software and integrates with the Mymobility care management platform.

An algorithm analyzes a patient's mobility to predict their walking speed after surgery. Patient data is compared to anonymized real-world data from the ZBEdge database.
