Knee Testing Device

Instruments and Hardware

Engineer:  Carl Imhauser, PhD

The Pivot Shifter and Linkage Device quantitatively and objectively measures the 3D displacements of the knee joint in response to multidirectional loads in a clinical setting. The clinical standard in diagnosing knee injury and assessing knee reconstruction has remained an anterior stability exam, either done manually or with the use of an arthrometer. Current arthrometers fail to characterize the effect of knee injury and reconstruction.
