ACL MEASUREMENT DEVICE
CUSTOM MEDICAL MEASUREMENT DEVICE
A leading research hospital required a new way to measure pre- and post-operative knee compliance within the scope of a fixed research grant. The system was designed to give the operator a good feel for the weight applied to the patient, while giving the patient the ability to rapidly release themselves from the device in the event of discomfort.
- JAKTOOL worked with physicians and clinical researchers to create a first-of-its-kind measuring device that precisely measures translational and rotational displacements of the femur
- JAKTOOL developed fixation methods that overcame the difficulty of working with soft tissue
RESULT: JAKTOOL developed, manufactured and delivered a new product to market on time and within budget.
