TracPatch Targets Efficiency in Post-Op Care
BONEZONE interviewed Douglas McCollum, Marketing & Communications Manager for Consensus Orthopedics, about the TracPatch system and its role in the orthopedic industry.
In 2017, Consensus Orthopedics launched TracPatch, a wearable device that monitors patients pre- and post-op in an effort to engage them in tracking their own recovery. TracPatch represents an example of a smaller company developing technology—outside of implantables and hardware—that responds to the evidence-based medicine movement in the healthcare industry.
Consensus launched TracPatch in the U.S. and Australia for total knee reconstruction in 2017, and will launch TracPatch ACL and a demo of TracPatch Hip at the 2018 AAOS meeting. The company’s pipeline includes applications in multiple orthopaedic specialties, including shoulder and elbow.
