* This study utilized a non-Stryker VeraSense variant in reaching its conclusions. Outcomes may vary when using a Stryker variant.
A knee that is not correctly balanced during total knee arthroplasty may result in pain, stiffness, limited function and range of motion and instability for the patient following surgery.5-9 These patient-reported outcome measurements can influence patient satisfaction and quality of care metrics for reimbursement.
The use of VeraSense has shown statistically significant improvements in patient-reported outcome measurements and increase in physical therapy performance during early post-op recovery and rehabilitation for TKA.2-5 These improvements have translated to shorter treatments and lower overall costs in the complete TKA episode of care.5
The VeraSense trial, which replaces the standard Triathlon tibial insert trial, can be used during the trialing and final implantation stages of TKA. It utilizes proprietary sensor technology to provide you the following real-time data:
The VeraSense software displays this information on a tablet – the LinkStation MINI – via Bluetooth communication, allowing you to intraoperatively view and capture the compartmental loads at multiple degrees of flexion and assess joint kinetics throughout a range of motion.

Dr. Martin Roche and Dr. Kevin Wang discuss their experiences and outcomes using VeraSense for Triathlon, including details on how they critically analyze intraoperative VeraSense load data to address imbalances in commonly encountered balancing scenarios.
