A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11883243B2) discloses a system for interconnecting bones using an implantable member that provides minimal resistance to compression and supports a range of tensile loads. The system includes means for measuring the width of the implantable member at different loads and calculating the tension between the interconnected bones based on these measurements. Additionally, the implantable member can be a tether band, and the tension calculation can be performed using a smart phone or an optical detector.

Furthermore, the patent describes a system with bone anchors connected by an elastically deformable coupling, where the width of the coupling is observed by an optical device to generate data for calculating the tension between the bone anchors. The system allows for the observation of multiple dimensions of the coupling and utilizes the Poisson Effect for tension calculation. The coupling can be a tether band, and the tension calculation can be done using a smart phone. Overall, the patent presents innovative systems for bone interconnection with advanced measurement and calculation capabilities, potentially improving the efficiency and accuracy of bone-related medical procedures.
