Minimally Invasive Procedure for the Treatment of Chronic Knee Pain

Minimally Invasive Procedure for the Treatment of Chronic Knee Pain

ZKR has developed a new medical device and procedure that address chronic knee pain caused by the medical condition Condromalacia Patellae, a degeneration of the shock absorption at the knee cap. Millions of people suffer from this condition, which is caused by inflammation of the underside of the patella and softening of the cartilage. Most sufferers postpone medical intervention and suffer with the pain for years as the condition worsens, because until now, the solution is major surgery. Now, physicians can offer a truly effective solution, delivering mobility, relief from pain and possibly even avoiding the need for a knee replacement procedure. Developed by Dr. Jeffrey Halbrecht, a pioneer in minimally invasive techniques in arthroscopic surgery. The company has multiple patents, and has developed prototypes. ZKR is raising capital for product trials. The addressable market is large, estimated at a very conservative 1M per year to a high range of 20M patients.
