Hi,

A student of mine asked about a new type of knee
replacement prosthesis. She wanted to know which
company in the US produces this prosthesis. Unfortunately
for her, I could not help her. This is the description she gave
me:

"Iím looking for a new type of prosthesis for total
replacement of the knee joint. This new knee prosthesis is a
very recent development and it is developed somewhere in
the USA. The important thing here is that an electrical part
for control of position, giving the patient more degrees of
freedom to move."

Does anybody have a clue what prosthesis she could be
talking about and what company produces this prosthesis?

Best wishes,

Jan Stolk
