Find out more about the Kinestique process and how Knee Kinesiography can help you on
your pain management journey.

For Patients

Patients who visit can/will undergo a Kinestique Consultation Session, Knee Kinesiography Examination and Knee Rehabilitation Programme.

Knee injury assessment with the KneeKG™ System takes about 30 minutes for one knee and 45 minutes for two knees.

A knee assessment with the KneeKG™ System requires two or more visits.

First Visit:

On your first visit, our physiotherapist will assess your condition and lifestyle through a series of questions and a few tests. A preliminary examination of the patient and affected area is conducted to look out for possible biomechanical issues.

After the analysis, the patient can undergo the Knee Kinesiography Examination and book another session to have the results analysed.

Second visit:

During the second visit, the physiotherapist will explain your knee injury assessment results and guide you to do specific exercises.

Third visit:

The patient will work with our physiotherapist to stretch, strengthen, and correct existing issues to manage their pain.

If you wear orthotics, bring them along. Please also note that you should:

– Bring a pair of shorts and a pair of light socks;
– Not apply any cream on your knee or your thigh on the day of the exam

You will not be able to take the knee injury assessment if you have the following issues:

– A knee that blocks, Acute knee pain or swelling of the knee due to a recent trauma;
– Inability to walk for 5 to 10 minutes on the treadmill at a comfortable pace without holding on to the handles due to:
– A balance problem;
– A Severe limp;
– The need to wear a brace, a cane or a walker to be able to walk;
– Recent surgery or knee injection (cortisone, visco-supplementation, or platelet-rich plasma) that still cause severe pain or swelling.

If you think that you will not be able to take the test for any of these reasons or any other, simply notify the clinic.

Bring a pair of shorts and a pair of socks. There is a changing room within the clinic. Do not apply any cream on your knee or thigh. If you wear orthotics, bring them along.

For Healthcare Professionals

Knee misalignment is recognized in clinical practice guidelines to influence disease progression and patient symptoms. However, human visual perception is influenced by the assessment environment. An optical illusion, patient physiognomies, and other factors also influence the perception of misalignment by clinicians.

A knee injury assessment with the KneeKG™ system offers objective, quantifiable, actionable information about knee function for designing an efficient care pathway. It identifies mechanical deficiencies known to be a key factor in the development and progression of knee pathologies and those caused by specific injuries or complications.

Knee Kinesiography is done to assess:

– the impact of an injury on the knee joint function;
– functional etiology of patient symptoms;
– mechanical biomarkers linked with the development and progression of knee pathologies;
– the impact of treatments/surgery on the knee joint function.

Therefore, the healthcare provider can quickly:

– gain an understanding of the symptoms and how to manage the problem efficiently with objective data compared to visual and manual examinations with static information from medical imaging techniques;
– work towards full, functional recovery rather than simply treating the pain.

The KneeKG™ System assesses 3D knee kinematics (3-dimensional knee movements) in dynamic and weight-bearing conditions. More specifically, KneeKG™ identifies and measures biomechanical markers related to the progression and symptoms of various knee pathologies and/or trauma.

These markers are extracted from the raw KneeKG™ measurements, which are the 3D kinematics of the knee and include:

– Flexion/Extension; – Varus/Valgus; – Internal/External tibial rotation.

The KneeKG™ algorithms then analyze the data automatically and extract evidence-based Mechanical Biomarkers known to be linked with the progression of specific knee pathologies and pain symptoms or reported pain symptoms.

This medical resource provides instant reports with interpretations to help healthcare providers to personalize a treatment plan.
