FDA Clears OrthoSensor’s Knee Implant Sensor

April 9, 2020

The FDA granted OrthoSensor 510(k) clearance for its Verasense sensor technology for use during primary and revision total knee arthroplasty.

The additional clearance means the disposable sensor can now be used with Zimmer Biomet’s Persona Knee System for total knee replacement. The device received the same clearance in Australia earlier this year.

The sensor helps surgeons to evaluate ligament balance and the position of the knee implant during surgery.
