About Eventum Orthopaedics
John Naybour and Paul Atherton launched the company in 2020. The UK–based company aims to provide a better outcome for the approximately two million knee replacement surgeries with its leg device. The company provides Quadsense, a device that measures the forces of a patient’s quadriceps muscles. The examination runs before and during surgery. It enables surgeons to position the kneecap in such a way that the patient retains the same muscle balance as well as regains normal knee function. It has now achieved UK CA approval, in addition, to the ISO13485 standard for medical devices.
Eventum Orthopaedics’ leg surgery device has been used with robotic surgery in 20 procedures in New Zealand.
