Indviduals affected by Osteoarthiritis (OA) knee pain live with stiffness, tenderness, swelling, loss of flexibility, and continuous chronic pain.
Currently, the most effective solution involves midigating pain through the use of 3-point unloading braces such as the Unloader One by Ossur.
Current methods of testing knee braces include patients relaying qualitative descriptions of effectiveness or cadaver testing which does not properly match biomechanical output of living tissue.
Addressing the Need
Motivated to help thousands of individuals affected by knee OA to live pain free lives,
our team developed the Varus-Valgus-Verifier (V3) to
reliably quantify the unloading capacity of Osteoarthiritis knee braces
to improve the development of products that effectively reduce pain and increase mobility.
Quantipedics strives to reduce pain and elevate the quality of life for as many individuals as we possibly can.
We headed this project in partnership with Ossur
, a leading company in the ortheopedic and prosthetics industry who innovates to make "Life Without Limitations"
a reality for all.
The "V3" can quantify the force that the knee brace exerts on the knee.
Competition & Market Analysis
QuantiPedics is creating a new market for testing devices. As we define a new space for biomechanical testing fixtures, we aim to make old methods obsolete.
