Exactech launched an intraoperative wireless shoulder sensor called Equinoxe with Verasense, which was designed to allow surgeons to monitor dynamic loads on a patient's humeral insert, the company announced Oct. 6.
The measurements allow surgeons to monitor outcomes after shoulder replacement surgery. Two surgeons with Exactech's design team in California and Bordeaux, France, completed the first procedures with the device.
Exactech said spine surgeons who used the sensor "reported excellent experiences" so far.
The company expects to begin commercialization efforts in the first half of 2021.
