Recovery after hip replacement surgery usually takes around six to eight weeks.1 However, some people may have more extended recovery periods due to advanced age, activity level before surgery, or co-existing health conditions.
Preoperative planning is important for successful total hip arthroplasty (THA) and has been historically performed using acetate templates. Digital software templating has been adopted for evaluating implant size, position, and alignment. Commercial software can be expensive, but free programs exist. Detroit Bone Setter (detroitbonesetter.com, Detroit, MI) is a freely available templating program, but hasn’t been validated. Our study reports this program’s accuracy for templating THA.
Advances in the application of wearable sensors for gait analysis after total knee arthroplasty: a systematic review
Wearable sensors have become a complementary means for evaluation of body function and gait in lower limb osteoarthritis. This study aimed to review the applications of wearable sensors for gait analysis after total knee arthroplasty (TKA).
The number of patients with osteoarthritis has increased dramatically since the 1950s. Along with diabetes, the illness is now one of the fastest-growing endemic diseases in the world.
Medications, such as anti-inflammatories and injections of corticosteroids or hyaluronic acid, are often prescribed to treat osteoarthritis knee pain. But those aren’t your only options.
