Biomedical Device to recover from Knee Injury

Biomedical engineering students from Stevens Institute of Technology developed a device that monitors the angle of knee movement in injured players. The device—called a knee goniometer—recently took first place in the 37th Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference (NEBEC) Student Design Competition, according to an announcement from Stevens.

The method of assessing recovery after knee injuries, most prevalent among athletes, can inform physicians and surgeons as to the best course of treatment, according to the announcement.
