in Quebec, announces the adoption of the latest cutting-edge technology in the management of knee pain: KneeKGTM, whichexpands the evaluation services it offers in its clinics and knee centres.


the goal of providing an effective, personalized plan of treatment, ノquilibre now provides complete and precise diagnostic evaluation services for the knee. This unique approach is made possible by KneeKG technology, which measures objective, standardized data while the patient is in movement. "KneeKGTM represents a real revolution in the examination of the knee, as the precision of the technology permits the optimization of the plan of treatment. This means that the patient gains better quality of life and is able to be more mobile, which fully aligns with our mission", says Sylvain Boucher, President and CEO of Ergoresearch.

The data gathered by KneeKGTM provide the basis for an interdisciplinary approach with specialists from ノquilibre (kinesiologists, physical readaptation technicians, orthotists), as well as the treating physician, physiotherapists, and other Quebec healthcare professionals.

KneeKGTM was created in 2007 and is the result of 12 years of research at 3 universities in Quebec (ノcole de Technologie Sup駻ieure, centre de recherch du CHUM at Universit de Montr饌l, and ノcole Polytechnique) and the company Emovi. This system for the 3D analysis of anomalies of the knee received important support from the international medical community which benefits significantly from the new technology. In Quebec, Dr Pierre Ranger, orthopedic surgeon and chief of the orthopedic department at Jean-Talon hospital says: "The advantage of this technology is that it helps us diagnose problems of the knee and gives us relevant information to establish a plan of treatment and follow patients once they implement the plan."

Emovi, the Quebec-based company that markets KneeKGTM technology, is enthusiastic about the new partnership. "We are very pleased with our collaboration with ノquilibre and its impressive network of clinics that will provide greater access to this examination tool throughout Quebec" mentions Alexandre Fuentes, vice-president for clinical affairs at Emovi.

A new program, "I'm taking care of my arthrosis", which accompanies KneeKGTM will be spearheaded in Quebec by Ergoresearch who, while implementing the new technology, will also provide complete multidisciplinary care including therapist-supervised and personalized exercise programs.

This program is unique in Quebec and is grounded in the physical participation of each patient in their therapy. "We are proud to be able to contribute to the growth of Quebec-designed technology and to promote an interdisciplinary approach within our organization預nd all this, with the goal of providing our patients with the best possible quality of life", adds Mr. Boucher.
