The objective of this prospective study is to demonstrate accuracy of a limp detection model using a healthcare provider assessment as the non-reference standard.
Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||18 Years and Over|
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
The primary endpoint of the study is limp severity at the 4-6 week office visit. At 4-6 weeks (+/- 3 days) post-surgery, the healthcare team will assess the patient's limp severity by visual observation on a 3-point Likert scale (0=No limp, 1=Mild/Moderate or 2=Severe).
Patients indicated for a PersonaIQ total knee arthroplasty
Other: - Clinical Limping Evalution
Patients will be asked to perform a Clinical Limping Evaluation in the clinic during their post-operative follow-up visit. This will be performed in a controlled environment within the physician's clinic. Each patient will be asked to walk at their normal walking speed down a hallway for at least 7 consecutive steps and back toward the physician. Walking down the hallway and back is one walking trial. Each patient will be asked to perform 2 walking trials. The health care provider will assess the patient's limp using a 3-point Likert scale (0=No limp, 1=mild/moderate limp, 2=severe limp). If required, patients may use an assistive device and the type of device should be documented. If a patient requires assistance, only the minimum amount of assistance required for a patient to complete the task should be provided.
