Florida hospital adds smart knee implant


Miami-based Mount Sinai Medical Center became the first hospital in south Florida to use Zimmer Biomet's Persona IQ smart knee implant, according to a Jan. 30 news release shared in Miami's Community News.

The first case with Persona IQ was performed Jan. 11 by Karim Sabeh, MD. Persona IQ measures metrics including range of motion, walking speed and step count. The data can help patients and physicians track progress.

Persona IQ debuted in 2021, and multiple states have added the technology.
