OAISYS Inc. was established in 1996 by Dr. Derek Cooke as a means to leverage extensive clinical and research expertise to bring innovative, cost effective solutions to researchers and clinicians in the musculoskeletal field.
Our imaging solutions provide precision analysis for researchers, orthopedic surgeons, rheumatologists and implant manufacturers for the evaluation of bone and joint problems.
Accurate measurements are applied to low-cost radiographs obtained in a standardized way and by applying our unique calibration systems. The outcome is reliable accurate high quality information for clinical and research use. Our strength in precision radiography is founded on Standardized Knee Imaging (SKI), our gold standard, with proven accuracy and reliability in studies of knee alignment.

Image Analysis Contracts on NIH supported projects to analyze of Alignment for over 10,000 images for major clinical research projects on Knee OA: MOST 1 and 2, OAI, MAK3. To view this and our other endorsements click here
With the support from Canadian government (FedDev and IRAP grants), OAISYS teamed up with leading orthopedic and rehabilitation groups at Queen’s University and Toronto Western Hospital to evaluate the valididty and reliability of a novel Unicompartmental Grading scheme for Knee OA as seen here. This OA grading was used with Disability Evaluations Knee pain referrals and the results independanly matched to recommendation for surgery. The outcomes are a novel Knee Surgery Triage Tool, and development of Knee Evaluations.
OAISYS research work is PHRP (NIH) Certified.
