Hot Off Closing on Wright, Stryker is Back on the M&A Trail

Kalamazoo, MI-based Stryker has acquired OrthoSensor, a specialist in the digital evolution of musculoskeletal care and sensor technology for total joint replacement.

Only five days into the new year and two months after closing a colossal deal in orthopedics, Stryker is back on the prowl for more M&A. The Kalamazoo, MI-based company said Tuesday it has acquired OrthoSensor, a specialist in the digital evolution of musculoskeletal care and sensor technology for total joint replacement.

The companies did not disclose the sum.

Dania Beach, FL-based OrthoSensor was founded in 2017 and quantifies orthopedics through intelligent devices and data services. The private firm’s Verasense creates a knee balancing solution and has been used with Stryker’s Triathlon Knee System since 2011. 

Stryker said Verasense is also complementary to the Mako SmartRobotics system and can enhance the robotic workflow through one complete data-driven feedback mechanism.

Additionally, the MotionSense remote patient monitoring wearables and mobile application combined with the OrthloLogIQ cloud-based data platform has the potential to further enhance Stryker’s insightful data analytics capabilities.

“Smart devices and implants will play a big role in orthopedics and we are excited for OrthoSensor to join Stryker as we continue to innovate and advance smart sensor technologies, including intraoperative sensors, wearables, and smart implants across our joint replacement business,”said Spencer Stiles, Stryker’s Group President, Orthopedics and Spine. “Patient recovery will become more active as real-time measurement on key performance insights drive improved outcomes and patient satisfaction.”
