Emovi Inc., a medical device developer and manufacturer for orthopedics, will unveil its functional knee assessment device, the KneeKG system, to the U.S. imaging market during the 2021 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).

November 12, 2021 — Emovi Inc., a medical device developer and manufacturer for orthopedics, will unveil its functional knee assessment device, the KneeKG system, to the U.S. imaging market during the 2021 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). The RSNA annual conference is being held Nov. 28 through Dec. 1 in Chicago.

Emovi will present the KneeKG system in the Innovation Theater on Nov. 30 at noon local time. Emovi is also hosting an exclusive session called, “Redefining Traditional Static Knee Exams with Dynamic Information using the KneeKG system,” on Dec. 1 at 1:30 p.m. to present how the dynamic functional assessment can help overcome the limitations of static information from x-rays and MRI for the management of knee osteoarthritis, ligament injuries, anterior knee pain, and for pre-operative and post-operative total knee replacement programs.

“We are eager to launch our technology in the field of radiology, specifically, as pressure builds around the need to enhance diagnosis and patient communication,” said Michelle Laflamme, president and CEO of Emovi. “Every year in the U.S., there are about 19 million medical consultations for knee problems, and the majority result in an X-ray or MRI, which are sometimes limited in terms of clinical and actionable responses. The AI-powered KneeKG technology supports the static images with 3D information of the loaded knee for more precise and robust data on the causes of functional knee pain, ultimately allowing clinicians to provide better, more complete patient care.”

The KneeKG system is a portable, validated, FDA (510k) cleared medical device capable of assessing knee motion for patients with impaired movement functions of an orthopedic cause, complementing the x-ray and MRI. This assessment, described as the knee kinesiography exam, quickly provides accurate, reliable, and real-time data of knee joint motion in all three planes while under dynamic and loaded conditions. This exam specifically defines biomechanical dysfunctions, including any dynamic varus/valgus malalignment and thrust that may cause stress on the cartilage at loading. The KneeKG coupled with cloud AI-powered solutions enables radiologists to generate an objective Consultation Report for their referring physicians, with supportive information to help these clinicians in their medical decision-making process.
