Who are we?
Headquartered in Montreal, Emovi is a medical device company that develops products for knee joint assessment to restore patient quality of life. In partnership with the Quebec university research community, including the CRCHUM, École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) and TELUQ, Emovi completed the development of the KneeKG™. The society owns multiple patents and the exclusive worldwide license to commercialize KneeKG™ System.
At Emovi, our mission is to transform the musculoskeletal health care landscape by developing products at the cutting edge of technology, in order to allow the population to age while remaining active and healthy.
Knee Kinesiography is a knee exam to identify and address the causes of knee pain with the right information!

The KneeKGTM System :
KneeKG™ is the first in-clinic device that meets the global need for dynamic alignment and knee assessment. This innovative medical device evaluates knee function deficiencies linked to patients’ symptoms, knee injuries and pathology progression (markers). These biomechanical markers are identified from the raw KneeKG™ measurements, which are the 3D kinematics of the knee. They include flexion/extension, varus/valgus, internal/external rotation.
KneeKG™ is indicated for the appropriate assessment of 3D knee motion for patients who have impaired movement functions of an orthopaedic cause. It is intended to provide information used in physical evaluation and treatment planning purposes.
It demonstrates exactly how the knee joint is
The KneeKG™ assessment provides clinical insight to the root causes of knee symptoms for patients with:
You are a Clinician and would like to learn more about the Knee Kinesiography with the KneeKGTM?
You are a clinician and wish to integrate Knee Kinesiography with the KneeKG™ system into your practice:
Knee misalignment is recognized in clinical practice guidelines to influence disease progression and patient symptoms. Current medical practices use X-ray and CTs, along with manual (visual) observation to diagnose knee diseases. However, human visual perception is influenced by the assessment environment. Many other factors can influence the perception of misalignment by clinicians.
The results of a knee assessment with the KneeKG™ System offer objective, quantifiable and actionable information about knee function for designing an efficient care pathway. It identifies mechanical deficiencies known to be a key factor in the development and progression of knee pathologies and those caused by specific injuries or complications.
The results of a Knee Kinesiography with the KneeKG™ System enables the healthcare provider to rapidly:
The KneeKG™ System assesses 3D knee kinematics (3-dimensional knee movements) in dynamic and weight-bearing conditions. More specifically, KneeKG™ System identifies and measures biomechanical injuries related to the progression and symptoms of various knee pathologies and/or trauma.
These injuries are identified from the raw KneeKG™ System measurements, which are the 3D kinematics of the knee and include:
The KneeKG™ algorithms then analyze the data automatically and identify evidence-based Mechanical Biomarkers. The KneeKG™ System is a clinical resource that generates immediate results in the form of a written report, which includes visual aids.
“It’s an extraordinary device for anyone experiencing knee pain. KneeKG™ provided my doctor and physiotherapist pertinent information so they could personalize a treatment plan with effective exercises and a correction to my orthotics. My knee pain went from 10/10 to 0-ZERO! I am now back to my activities. I want to get old..., but pain free!” - Bruny
“With the results of the Knee Kinesiography, I integrated the recommended specific therapeutic plan to my training program,” said Duvernay-Tardif. “It has been 100% effective, and I’m back on the field without knee pain! Two months before the Super Bowl, I was at the peak of my performance” - Laurent
