KiRA Cloud is the new service provided in combination with KiRA, the unique medical device solution for quantification of knee dynamic instability.
KiRA Cloud allows users to recharge on line KiRA examination. Moreover it allows to save examination and specific kinematic parameters on secure database on the Cloud. Orthokey, in collaboration with business partners and clinical research centers, is going to launch several international clinical studies with KiRA. Main goal is to investigate new treatment strategies for treatment of Anterior Cruciate Ligament lesions.

Laura Nofrini • February 19th, 2015 • Uncategorized • Comments Off on AAOS 2015: ORTHOKEY presents KiRA System for iPad
ORTHOKEY Italia will be exhibiting at AAOS 2015 to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada (USA) from March 25 to 27 at booth #5232.
AAOS annual meetings gather every year about 30,000 among international orthopaedic surgeons and healthcare professionals worldwide and it is of utmost international importance for the orthopedic sector.
During AAOS 2015, ORTHOKEY Italia will present the new version for iPad of KiRA system, the smart digital device for assessing the kinematics of the patient’s knee joint directly into the doctor’s office.
At ORTHOKEY booth you can directly verify the ease of use and the efficacy in providing immediate evidence of the knee stability.
In addition to KiRA, you will find also other smart orthopedic solutions developed by ORTHOKEY:
–BLU-IGS system, a CAS platform that brings together innovative computer assisted solutions for hip and knee replacement
–PERSEUS, the gyro powered femoral axis finder assisting surgeon to perform perfectly aligned resections in TKA.

Laura Nofrini • October 24th, 2014 • Uncategorized • Comments Off on pivot shift test standardization and KiRA
As reported in the editorial of volume 20 issue 4 of KSSTA Journal ” The goal of an ACL reconstruction should be to reduce the pivot shift!” and also “…it would make sense to ‘standardize’ the pivot shift test, so that clinical outcome can be compared in a meaningful manner.”
During Panther global summit, held in Pittsburgh in 2011, standardization test were performed. Test were conducted with 12 expert surgeons. Results indicates that performing a standardized pivot shift test produces not only similar examinations but displayed similar acceleration curves, whereas during the surgeons’ preferred technique, they did not. The instructional video that describes the standardized pivot shift test can be retrieved on KSSTA website.

In that issue of KSSTA Journal the path for the next years on ACL research has been traced. Standardized pivot shift test is fundamental to improve diagnosis and research on ACL field. Our effort at Orthokey, in the design of KiRA, totally adapt to what reported by the opinion leaders in this field.
Using KiRA helps to standardize results of pivot shift test during the evaluation of ACL lesion and in the control of joint laxity during recovery. Quantification of standardized pivot shift in the clinical setting is more valid and reliable than simple subjective evaluation of a manual pivot shift test. Moreover the standardized shift will help communicating between docs, and the standardized shift will help decrease variability when using quantitative devices such as KiRA
Laura Nofrini • September 17th, 2014 • Uncategorized • Comments Off on SIGASCOT 2014: ORTHOKEY presents KiRA and PERSEUS
ORTHOKEY Italia will be exhibiting at the National Congress SIGASCOT 2014 that will be held in Parma from September 24 to 26.
It will be an opportunity to present to the Italian excellence in knee surgery PERSEUS, the gyro powered femoral axis finder assisting surgeon to perform perfectly aligned resections in knee arthroplasty. PERSEUS presents many advantages compared to conventional solutions for TKA in terms of safety, reliability and ease of use. We will be pleased to meet you at our booth to talk about its features.
In addition, we will present the new version for iPad of KiRA system, the smart digital device for assessing the kinematics of the patient’s knee joint directly into the doctor’s office. KiRA provides both real-time graphics and quantitative information about the examination for an accurate diagnosis.
Come to visit us at our booth at SIGASCOT 2014!
