Software, Physiologic Analysis, Joint Laxity
Definition : Physiologic analysis software designed to operate computerized joint laxity analyzers, control/monitor a limited number of their functions, and/or process data obtained while testing. This software is intended to work with one or a few models of joint laxity analyzers, usually from the same manufacturer. The software may perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements performed while assessing joint laxity data (e.g., range of motion, acceleration), and/or while processing and or receiving information from hospital information systems. Joint laxity analysis software is not usually available separate from the analyzer but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the analyzer. Dedicated joint laxity analysis software that can assess other characteristics of the joints such as joint laxity and stability of the knee and the length of reconstructed ligaments is available.
