Small typo: "moves the natural knee threw its normal range of motion". Should be "through".

As someone who has had a number of friends and relatives with knee replacements (and worried about maybe having to have it done eventually), I think this is a great step forward. Like Dr. Quine, I wonder what is next as well. I'm sure there will be some more really useful applications of MEMS.

This is very clever, who would have thought that tiny MEMS would have applications in such a seemingly large scale problem as knee surgery and alignment? What's next? Could our car tires have an automated self-alignment feature?

This is a better alternative compared to the optical alignment tools. This is a very great application of MEMS, the video shared by agk is great, really very helping innovation using MEMS for the future generations.

A highly innovative approach to help the surgeons and the patients. The orthopedic surgeon does it and it is in this video http://www.orthalign.com/products_technology/surgical_video.asp.
