TracPatch™ Executive Team and Dr. John Mariani will represent Consensus Orthopedics groundbreaking wearable device and app agnostic platform

TracPatch Technology

TracPatch is a touchstone of the entire orthopedics industry, connecting patient characteristics and health care provider performance with the most important data of all: patient outcomes.

Consensus Orthopedics Inc. will introduce TracPatch™ in the WT | Wearable Technologies Pavilion at MEDICA 2017 in Dusseldorf, Germany, November 13th-16th. TracPatch™ is a new revolutionary wearable device empowering at-home patient recovery and remote monitoring for effective managed care. TracPatch passively and continuously tracks a user’s daily activities, including exercise compliance, range of motion, and daily goals, while maintaining the critical connection between the healthcare provider and patient. Through data collection and monitoring, TracPatch™ ensures patients will receive effective care based on their individual needs.

Dr. S. David Stulberg, Orthopedic Surgeon at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Founder and Secretary General of the International Society for Technology in Arthroplasty, says “TracPatch is going to change the way the healthcare industry views and treats joint replacement patients. Not only will we be able to pre-operatively monitor patient activity to set a clinical baseline, surgeons will be able to monitor how their patients are recovering long after they have been discharged which will ultimately result in less patients being readmitted to the hospital and higher success rates of surgery. It is exciting to be presenting this device globally as we know TracPatch will have a positive impact on healthcare.”

“We are honored to be invited to show our innovative technology at this year’s MEDICA 2017 in the WT | Wearable Technologies Pavilion. Using our agnostic platform, TracPatch technology has the ability to simultaneously enrich multiple healthcare arenas. I look forward to spending the week in Dusseldorf with our current and future TracPatch partners,” said Michael Droege, Vice President of Global Business Development at Consensus.

The showcase of TracPatch by Consensus Orthopedics in Dusseldorf, Germany is the beginning of a worldwide expansion of the device that is revolutionizing the way data is used in orthopedics. Visit our booth at Wearable Technologies Show 2017 Medica, Hall 15 / A23, to speak with the TracPatch team and Dr. John Mariani to learn more about this groundbreaking device.

Curt Wiedenhoefer, President of Consensus Orthopedics and General Manager of the TracPatch Division, says “TracPatch is revolutionizing evidence-based medicine. In a very short amount of time, we have been able to align ourselves with effective and world renowned partners. With this type of momentum, we are pushing the boundaries of wearable medical technology in the orthopedic market to enhance patient outcomes. I am looking forward to our showcase of the TracPatch at MEDICA 2017.”
