Orthopedic startup gets $2M for hip replacement sensors

biomet_hip_implantIn order for arthroplasty surgery to restore proper joint function, surgeons must carefully align orthopedic implants. A Massachusetts startup is developing a simple sensor system that’s meant to improve the precision and efficacy of these arthroplasty surgeries.

ArthroMeda just raised $1.9 million, according to a regulatory filing, from four investors. This is its third fundraise – having brought in $1.6 million in 2014 and $695,000 in 2013.
