    KT-1000 VS. GNRB VIDEO: TESTING THE ACL WITH BOTH ARTHROMETERS

    The KT-1000 arthrometer was a medical device that received critical acclaim in the 1990's regarding ACL diagnosis. Since then, it remained a reference in its field of application until the company Medmetric terminated its production in 2015.

    Hopefully, Genourob created the first automated arthrometer, the GNRB as an alternative and more reliable solution with new advanced features: automation, reproducibility, more accurate data collection on the ACL (compliance curves)...
