Persona IQ Press Release
Premier Bone & Joint Centers is now offering Persona IQ®, the World’s First and Only Smart Knee Implant for Total Knee Replacement Surgery
Laramie, WY 3/8/23 – Premier Bone & Joint Centers is now offering Persona IQ®, the world’s first and only smart knee implant granted De Novo status by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for total knee replacement surgery. Persona IQ combines the proven1 and trusted knee implant, Persona® The Personalized Knee®, with implantable sensor technology that measures range of motion, step count, walking speed, and other gait metrics.
“We’re excited to offer Persona IQ, the world’s first smart knee implant, to our patients right here in Wyoming. This new technology will provide surgeons access to objective kinematic data directly from the implant after surgery. This allows us to monitor the health and function of the joint replacement remotely. This is a game changer for our patients from across the state facing difficult travel, especially in the winter. Nothing is more important to all of us at Premier Bone & Joint Centers than ensuring our patients have the best possible outcomes.” said Dr. John V. Horberg of Premier Bone & Joint Centers.
Persona IQ features implantable sensor technology that records and wirelessly transmits a wide range of gait data from the knee implant to a patient’s personal base station at home. The data is then securely delivered to a HIPAA-compliant cloud-based platform and can be accessed by the patient and their surgeon. Persona IQ will work together with mymobility®, a remote care management platform that tracks pre- and post-operative mobility metrics.
