A new system that can accurately measure patients for hip replacements has been developed by surgeons at the University of Warwick and University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW).

KingMark provides a non-intrusive, reliable method of calculating radiographic hip magnification, which could save the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) thousands of pounds and improve efficiency for orthopaedic surgeons worldwide.

The invention includes a simple kit for measurement and comprises a pad with an incorporated measurement system.

This new system is much less intrusive for patients, more accurate, and particularly useful in measuring larger patients with less wastage and more efficiency and time savings for orthopaedic surgeons.

KingMark will be launched in the US this month and will be marketed to the healthcare profession worldwide.
