Smart implants are expected to profoundly change how surgeons treat and monitor joint replacement and spine patients through the ability to track their recoveries. Orthopedic companies are developing active implants that incorporate battery-powered sensors and self-sensing constructs to collect data and heal bones. This panel discussion includes startups and researchers in various stages of developing smart implants. They will share how they designed and developed their technologies, what data their implants track and why smart implants are critical for advancing patient care.
