Abstract: Total knee joint replacement surgery is the only solution for thousands of patients each year who are severely afflicted by osteoarthritis. The knee joint, consisting of the femoral head, the tibial condyles and the patella, may be replaced by two or three prosthetic implants during a typical surgical procedure. A pressure-mapping sensor, that can check the alignment of the prostheses, can reduce the chances of an early revision surgery.
