LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 10, 2014--The OrthoSonos Health Index (OHI) reports data captured through an innovative medical device, OrthoSonos, during a sit and stand procedure to determine the health of joints and prosthetic implants. OrthoSonos is being revealed to a select group of physicians at an invite-only event during the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) Annual Meeting in New Orleans on March 13 th.

“Traditional tools for evaluating joint health take a static view of the joint, but the real innovation here is that OrthoSonos gathers signals of friction and degradation from moving joints across a range of motion that is much more realistic of use,” said Martin Burns, CEO of Bruin Biometrics.

Interim results from a clinical study show OHI values from patients with knee implants increasing in the first three years – a suspected “bedding in” stage – followed by a steady decline to near zero after approximately 10 years of use. High positive values are indicative of joints that are gliding smoothly with minimal audible friction. Low values are indicative of friction and degradation.

“The promise of OrthoSonos is to provide orthopedic surgeons and rheumatologists with dynamic joint health assessment data gathered in-office, in real time and without side effects to patients,” Burns said.

Physicians wanting to learn more about OrthoSonos and the reveal event on March 13 th should contact Dr. Herman Lelie ( hlelie@bruinbiometrics.com ) or Anasheh Shamirian ( ashamirian@bruinbiometrics.com ).
