Stryker acquires Dania Beach company

This week, medical technology company Stryker, a Fortune 500 company, announced its acquisition of OrthoSensor, based in Dania Beach.

OrthoSensor produces sensor technology for use in total joint replacement and musculoskeletal care, making it an ideal fit for Stryker, which has already used OrthoSensor products. In fact, Stryker notes that the acquisition will allow them to empower surgeons with comprehensive data-driven solutions such as OrthoSensor’s Verasense. Pictured above, Verasense is an intraoperative sensor that creates a unique knee balancing solution. It has been used with Stryker’s Triathlon Knee System since 2011.

“Smart devices and implants will play a big role in orthopaedics and we are excited for OrthoSensor to join Stryker as we continue to innovate and advance smart sensor technologies, including intraoperative sensors, wearables and smart implants across our joint replacement business,” said Spencer Stiles, Stryker’s group president, orthopaedics and spine.

Stryker, based in Kalamazoo, says OrthoSensor’s advancements in sensor technology, coupled with expanded data analytics and increasing computational power, will strengthen the foundation of Stryker’s digital ecosystem. Orthopaedics information quantified by OrthoSensor’s products and services allow surgeons and hospitals to deliver evidence-based treatments for all healthcare stakeholders.

“Patient recovery will become more active as real-time measurement on key performance insights drive improved outcomes and patient satisfaction,” Stiles said.

In 2018, Stryker opened Mako Education Center, a robotic surgery education center in Fort Lauderdale.
