Sensortech Announces New, Ligament Balancing TKA Smart Insert


2/6/2013 9:35:25 AM

PENDLETON, S.C., Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sensortech Corporation announced advancement of their new, orthopedic knee alignment product, the Force Check Knee Replacement Smart Insert designed for improving total knee arthroplasty (TKA) surgeries.

Incorporating FDA-approved Bluetooth 4 low energy technology, and FDA-approved plastics technology, the Force Check Knee Replacement Smart Insert can readily adapt to all TKA replacement components on the market. The insert will increase TKA profitability through reduced operating and patient recovery times, faster healing times, reduced component wear, superior pain management and fewer revisions.

With FDA approval, Sensortech's technology could also become a "leave in" device, measuring TKA component performance throughout the replacement's operational life.

"The new Smart Insert is a patented, superior solution. It provides real time condyle contact pressure (force) as well as contact location and contact patch movement tracking throughout the flexion testsomething unique to the market today. We know the demand for this device is there. Surgeons and medical device manufacturers have been telling us they need our insert," said inventor Dr. Andrew Clark.

To exploit the market value of this device and assist in acquiring a 510K to develop the "leave in" solution, Sensortech is seeking acquisition partner(s). The company has also positioned their Force Check Knee Replacement Smart Insert device as an initial entry into a line of medical device smart inserts for all types of joint replacement surgeries. For more information about Sensortech go to www.sensortechknee.com or contact Sensor Tech Corporation at info@sensortechcorp.com, (864) 298-0684.

This press release includes forward-looking statements covered by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Because such statements deal with future events, they are subject to various risks and uncertainties. Actual results for fiscal year 2013 and beyond could differ materially from Sensortech Corporation's current expectations. Factors that could cause Sensortech Corporation's results to differ materially from those expressed in forward-looking statements include: variation in demand and acceptance of products and services, general business and economic conditions beyond Sensortech Corporation's control, the consequences of competitive factors in the marketplace including the ability to attract and retain customers, results of continuous improvement and other cost-containment strategies, and Sensortech Corporation's success in attracting and retaining key personnel. Sensortech Corporation undertakes no obligation to revise or update forward-looking statements as a result of new information, since these statements may no longer be accurate or timely.
