Our solution

Using physics-based modelling, AI technology and visualization techniques, Algoa takes the treatment and prevention of Osteoarthritis - and revolutionizes it

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most common joint disease and the main cause for knee pain, which approximately affects every fourth of us at some point of our lives. It has been estimated that globally there are over 600 million people suffering from knee osteoarthritis.

As there is no cure for the damaged knee cartilage, the most beneficial treatment would simply be to prevent the disease from developing. The key for prevention is an early detection of the disease, when the available treatments are the most beneficial.

Currently clinicians do not know who will develop osteoarthritis or when, especially when the knee is still healthy and there are no clear signs of the disease. This causes that the disease often develops inevitably and that the treatments are often started at a late stage.

Algoa Progress

Algoa Progress provides improved clinical diagnostic and osteoarthritis progression prediction tools, to assist healthcare practitioners, but also patients to optimize the best possible treatment strategy aiming to prevent the disease development or to slow down its progression.

It is the first solution providing a comprehensive personalized treatment journey from the first clinical visit to sustained quality of life. It is the first solution to predict and quantify the patient's osteoarthritis risk evolution and a visual demonstration of the prediction. In addition, It is the only solution to simulate and visualize the effects of personalized treatment interventions supporting planning the most effective prevention strategies.

The solution is currently under development by an international team consisting of experts in osteoarthritis research, artificial intelligence, clinical image analysis, and hospital data systems. We are expecting to launch the product to the markets during 2023.
