On Friday afternoon (27th November), SORI staff were excited to receive delivery of their brand new GNRB and ROTAM measurement devices from Genourob, France.
We have set the devices up in our measurement room and are ready for training on 8th December 2017.
After SORI staff are trained, we can commence using this with patients, providing us with more accurate ways to diagnosis and monitor ligament injuries.
Genourob’s medical devices are designed to effectively evaluate the state of the ligamentous structures of the knee. To do so, Genourob uses its automated dynamic laximetry method, LDA®. These devices’ usefulness extends from the preoperative to the postoperative phase of the patient’s medical management. Running tests with both of them one after another enables medical practitioners to do a complete and overall objective check-up of knee laxity.
Presently, it is the device that provides the best precision in regards of knee ACL laxity assessement and it is the only arthrometer (aka. laximeter) able to objectively evaluate knee stability because of the dynamic tests it runs. User friendliness has also been taken into account while designing this arthrometer leading to several parameters and sensors being installed in order guide the users while running dynamic tests. Because of these parameters and sensors, precise test reproducibility has also become an attribute of the GNRB.
The LDA® Method is an integral part of the GNRB and it is perhaps what makes this device leader on the market for ACL analysis. The results provided after running tests are shown under the form of a graph with compliance curves (=opposite of the stiffness curves) accompanied by a table chart. This makes the tests easy to understand, to reproduce and it allows an evaluation with accurate figures of ligament laxity of the knee and more precisely knee stability.
The ROTAM is currently the device that provides the best precision and it is the only arthrometer (aka. laximeter) able to objectively evaluate tibial rotation ultimately giving information on the state of the knee peripheral ligamentous structures. Tests that are done by the ROTAM are dynamic and user friendliness has been considered while the designing of this medical device. Several parameters and sensors are indeed incorporated in this arthrometer to help the users in running their tests. Precise test reproducibility has therefore also become an attribute of the ROTAM because of these sensors and parameters.
The LDA® Method is an integral part of the ROTAM and it is perhaps what makes the ROTAM leader on the market for peripheral knee ligamentous structures analysis. The results provided after running tests are shown under the form of a graph with curves accompanied by a table chart. This makes the tests easy to understand, to reproduce and it allows an evaluation with accurate figures of knee laxity and more precisely knee stability.
