FollowKnee: Mixed Reality as a tool for knee surgery

FollowKnee is one of the ten University-Hospital Research projects selected at the end of 2017 by the French government, as part of the “Investissements d’Avenir” (Investments for the future) program. The purpose of this e-health project is to develop a connected knee prosthesis designed to improve the follow-up of patients. The FollowKnee project with a duration of 5 years provides concrete solutions at each stage of the process: improving the design, manufacturing, installation and the personalized follow-up of implanted prostheses.


FollowKnee was conceived to revolutionize knee related treatment and the overall care of the patient, ahead of the operation all the way to its post-operative follow-up. As a project partner, Immersion’s role is to study, design and produce the Mixed Reality experience that will help surgeons in the operating room to optimize the implementation of this innovative prosthesis.
