First Coast Surgery Center offering smart knee implant


First Coast surgery center is now the first center in North Florida offering Persona IQ, the world’s first and only smart knee implant granted De Novo status by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for total knee replacement surgery.

Persona IQ combines the proven and trusted knee implant Persona The Personalized Knee with implantable sensor technology that measures range of motion, step count, walking speed and other gait metrics.

“We’re excited to offer Persona IQ, the world’s first smart knee implant, to our patients considering knee replacement surgery,” said one of the orthopedic surgeons. “This new to world innovation will provide surgeons access to objective kinematic data directly from the implant post-surgery.”

Persona IQ features implantable sensor technology that records and wirelessly transmits a wide range of gait data from the knee implant to a patient’s personal base station at home. The data is then securely delivered to a HIPAA-compliant, cloud-based platform and can be accessed by the patient and surgeon. Persona IQ will work together with mymobility, a remote-care management platform that tracks pre- and post-operative mobility metrics.
