Cotras Co. Ltd, a collaboration between three Korean institutions, has developed the Mobilise medical device for rehabilitating patients with degenerative knee arthritis.

The device has received FDA clearance for marketing in the U.S., thanks in part to a virtual reality (VR) game user interface that assesses patients’ motor function and balance. The Mobilise device uses moment biofeedback sensors to adjust its resistance to match the patient’s needs, and helps patients get stronger through various exercises.

With millions of people around the world suffering from joint problems that limit their mobility, this technology represents a promising new approach to rehabilitating patients with knee arthritis.
