TracPatch in Total Knee Arthroplasty

September 9, 2019

Overview

The Consensus TracPatch is a wearable device with an accelerometer, temperature sensor and step count to monitor recovery in real time after surgery. This study examines how the Consensus TracPatch may improve rehabilitation in patients who use it after total knee arthroplasty surgery compared to patients who do not use it.

 

Study Information

This study will place patients in one of two groups at random: an intervention group and a control group. The intervention group will be those who are given the Consensus TracPatch after total knee arthroplasty and the control group are patients who are not given the Consensus TracPatch. Range of motion, the Oxford Knee Score, the Knee Society Score, and the Visual Analogue Score are referenced by researchers to determine effectiveness.
