Analyzers, Physiologic, Joint Laxity
Definition : Physiologic analyzers designed to assess the functioning of normal or abnormal joints (e.g., knee); they can measure and document the slackness and/or displacement in the motion of a joint (i.e., the joint laxity), usually by measuring ranges of motion, acceleration, or forces exerted by the joint. Some of these analyzers can also assess other characteristics of the joints, such as the stability and/or anterior/posterior tibial displacement. Joint laxity evaluation physiologic analyzers are used in joint function diagnoses and/or in reconstructive surgery to evaluate and control joint laxity and stability of the knee and the length of reconstructed ligaments.
