Better Than Eyeballing: Sensors Aid in Joint-Replacement Sur
Knee and hip replacement surgeries are increasing along with the growing population of those aged 60 and older. ADI sensors enhance devices that aid in surgical navigation for less than the cost of traditional computer-assisted surgical systems and more accurately than manual methods.

The need for replacement surgeries that are accurate, efficient, and cost-effective has grown exponentially as well. To meet that demand, OrthAlign, Inc., a medical-technology company, has developed a palm-sized, single-use device equipped with sensors from Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI). Surgeons can use the device to help them navigate during surgery and more quickly and accurately align hip and knee joints in these increasingly common, yet still tricky, operations...
