Knee Kinesiography

What is knee kinesiography

What exactly does Knee Kinesiography measure and why?

Knee Kinesiography, performed by the KneeKG system is
‘Designed to be for the Knee what the electrocardiogram is for the heart’.

Knee pain occurs when the joint is in motion. Knee Kinesiography accurately and objectively assesses complete movement of the knee to help healthcare professionals understand pain and symptoms.

The Right Care
At the Right Time
With the Right Information

  • The knees can be compared to the foundation of a house.
  • If we want to keep our house in good condition for a long period of time, it is important to assess its risk factors and their condition (using sound protocols and tools according to guidelines)
  • Risk factors that can negatively impact the quality of the foundation
    • Intrinsic factors such as age and quality of the material
    • External factors such as the inappropriate weight alignment
    • Negative environmental factors impacting the foundation – mechanical factors that put pressure on the foundation causing misalignment 
    • Renovations completed inappropriately (not up to code) on the areas surrounding the foundation
    • Changing the weight of the house to accommodate additional rooms
  • Preventing the degeneration of the foundation and/or managing deterioration at an early stage is more cost-effective than major repairs once the damage is severe.  If the problem is left unaddressed, the house would require renovations, rebuilding/restoring the foundation or even demolition.
  • The quality of the foundation can be assessed visually.  However, to ensure a great outcome, an action plan supported by proper diagnostic tools that identify underlying issues and  generate sound recommendations and  preventive measures is ideal.
  • Mechanical deficits are associated with the onset and the progression of knee pain, instabilities and pathologies
  • Eyes and hands cannot effectively identify and assess all of the mechanical deficits
  • Mechanical deficits, when identified and measured, can be corrected with personalized therapy
