Hackensack University Medical Center is First in the Nation to Acquire the TSolution One® Active Robot by THINK Surgical for Total Knee Replacement Procedures
Hackensack University Medical Center, a national leader in orthopedic care and robotic surgery, is the first facility in the United States to acquire and offer patients undergoing total knee replacement the TSolution One® Total Knee Application for use in total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The system, which is manufactured by Fremont, California-based THINK Surgical, Inc., features a fully active robot for orthopedic surgery.
"We are very excited to be the first hospital in the U.S. to purchase this innovative technology which uses a fully active robot to treat end-stage knee arthritis," said Michael A. Kelly, M.D. chair of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery and chair of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Hackensack Meridian Health Hackensack University Medical Center. "Our orthopedic team is committed to utilizing innovative and cutting-edge technologies to adva

RSIP Vision Launches AI-Based Total Hip Replacement Solution
RSIP Vision, a global leader in artificial intelligence (AI), computer vision, and image processing technology, announced today a new AI-based total hip replacement solution that provides a precise, automated 3D structure of the patients’ hip for physicians to better plan surgery.
The new technology will create a precise fit of the new implant to best fit the patients’ body, enabling a better clinical outcome and an easier recovery. At the heart of the solution is a cutting-edge AI algorithm, that brings new capabilities to the world of Orthopedy.
A total hip replacement is a surgical procedure where the diseased cartilage and bone of the hip joint is surgically replaced with artificial materials. In the U.S. alone, there are 370,000 hip replacements performed annually and the volumes are growing each year. In most cases, the THA`s (Total Hip Arthroplasty) are performed because of p

Parkinson’s patients’ symptoms are improved with weekly regimens that include both physical and cognitive exercises
Parkinson’s patients’ motor and non-motor symptoms were improved with a weekly exercise regimen that included physical and cognitive tasks, according to new research presented December 16, 2019, at The Physiological Society early career conference, Future Physiology 2019: Translating Cellular Mechanisms into Lifelong Health Strategies.
Parkinson’s Disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that can lead to disability and make it harder to lead an active lifestyle. Previous research has shown that either physical or cognitive exercises are effective at improving and sustaining cognitive and/or physical function in people with Parkinson’s.
However, doing different types of exercise (e.g. circuit training also including cognitive challenges), may be more beneficial in improving motor and non-motor symptoms.
Researchers at the University of Kent studied Parkinson’s patients that perfo

High intensity interval training (HIIT) timing matters for increasing fitness
High intensity interval training (HIIT) is only effective for improving fitness when performed at 60-second intervals, according to new research from Liverpool John Moores University, presented today (Tuesday 17 December) at The Physiological Society early career conference, Future Physiology 2019: Translating Cellular Mechanisms into Lifelong Health Strategies.
Currently 40% of people in the UK do not meet the Government’s physical activity guidelines, with a lack of time cited as the most common barrier.
HIIT, meaning short burst (anywhere from 20 to 90 seconds) of intense cardio exercises is a time-efficient alternative that has been making headlines in the last decade. Specifically, home-based HIIT, which involves doing HIIT training at home using simple body weight exercises, has become popular because it gets rid of the barriers such as the time and money required to go to the gy
