What is Knee Kinesiography with KneeKG?

Knee Kinesiography is a medical exam of the knee performed while the knee moves while the patient is walking on a treadmill. The system is attached to the knee in order to evaluate joint function. In the same way the EKG is performed for the heart, this exam shows the state of the knee joint by capturing the movement and helps to understand the deficits related to pain. We can then identify and treat the causes of the pain with the correct information such as:

  • Knee pain generally appears with the movement of the joint and is related to biomechanical dysfunctions.
  • There is little or no correlation between functional joint pain and static image tests like X-ray and MRI.

Who can benefit from KneeKG?

A KneeKGTM knee exam is recommended to evaluate the knee motion in 3D for patients with impaired knee function due to orthopedic causes.

  • Ligament injuries;
  • Knee osteoarthritis;
  • Sports injuries;
  • Meniscal injuries;
