Northern Montana Hospital Now Offering New Smart Knee Implant

(Havre) – Northern Montana Hospital (NMH) is now offering Persona IQ, the world’s first smart knee implant granted “De Novo status” by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for total knee replacement surgery.

Persona IQ features implantable sensor technology that records and wirelessly transmits a wide range of gait data from the knee implant to a patient’s personal base station at home. The data is then securely delivered to a HIPAA compliant cloud-based platform and can be accessed by the patient and their surgeon. Persona IQ can be also used along with mymobility, a remote care management app that tracks pre- and post-operative mobility metrics.
