Knee pain is the second leading cause of chronic pain. A knee pain survey revealed that 50 percent of Singaporean residents have previously or currently suffer from chronic knee pain and 73 percent are at risk of developing knee osteoarthritis in their lifetime, causing functional limitations and discomfort.
The FDA (USA) and HAS (Singapore) cleared KneeKG is the first in-clinic device that enables healthcare professionals to accurately, objectively, and in real-time assess a patient’s knee(s) in 3D while the patient is moving and weight-bearing. In contrast to static information provided by X-ray and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), KneeKG quickly identifies the biomechanical and functional deficits linked to pain and instabilities of an orthopedic cause such as those associated with knee osteoarthritis, anterior knee pain, and ligament injuries. By providing a functional and objective knee assessment with a higher correlation to the symptoms, the KneeKGTM enables the clinician to develop a more focused treatment plan to significantly improve patients’ quality of life, pain, and functional limitations.
“We are very pleased to be able to offer such a revolutionary technology to our patients in order to help them with their knee issues,” said Pamela Kwan, Kinestique’s Managing Director. “We strive to use the KneeKG to improve their quality of life and quickly get them back to their normal daily routines and activities.”
“Globally, knee pain affects millions at some point during their life. The KneeKG goes beyond the current standard of care by providing real-time, quantifiable data that objectively and accurately assess dynamic knee function,” said Michelle Laflamme, president and CEO of Emovi, Inc. “Launching the KneeKG in Southeast Asia is a huge milestone for Emovi. We are delighted that Kinestique is the first clinic to introduce the technology in their market.”
The KneeKG is available at Kinestique Diagnostic Centre:
