Government of Canada supports innovation
The signing of an agreement with Queen’s University allows local businesses to work with research teams at Queen’s University on developing new ideas and bringing those new products to Canadians. One of the businesses is Oaisy in the County of Frontenac.
OAISYS Inc. is a leading medical device and image analysis company specializing in standardized imaging of plain X-rays. OAISYS has teamed up with an orthopedic surgery group at Queen’s as part of a clinical project for the development of a web-based Knee Surgery Triage Tool. The project is a novel approach to improve health care delivery and lower costs by enabling family doctors, other health care workers, and surgeons, locally or remotely, to accurately quantify the level of disability and radiographic joint damage in an arthritic knee. The tool will help prioritize surgical referrals by defining the optimal timing for surgery or other care and collect accurate information on disease progression and outcome of treatment over time.
