AUSTIN, TX, USA, December 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Insight Medical Systems Completed First Clinical Cases With Its ARVIS® portable augmented reality navigation system in conjunction with DJO’s EMPOWR ™ implants. Seven surgeons across the country have performed over thirty total hip and knee replacements.
“I am impressed with the precision and simplicity of ARVIS and look forward to seeing this technology develop,” said Robert Limoni, MD, Holy Family Memorial. “After experiencing the evolution of robotics, augmented reality will improve future results of joint replacement in a cost-effective manner. “
“ARVIS has been surprisingly easy to integrate into our surgical workflow. I have found it precise and precise without the huge costs and inefficiencies that robotics has introduced to our specialty. Robotics and navigation, as we know them today, will quickly be replaced by this more sophisticated technology. – Michael Nett, MD
This milestone underscores not only the value of ARVIS in clinical use, but also the adaptability of this technology to a range of clinical parameters. During the past two weeks, ARVIS has been used in an orthopedic hospital, community hospitals, large research hospitals and an outpatient surgery center (ASC). This list includes sites where the use of computer-assisted surgery is standard, but also establishments that have historically not had access to navigation technology.
“We believe technology should be an integral part of orthopedic surgery, but its benefits shouldn’t be limited to a handful of hospitals that can afford million dollar robots. It should be accessible to small community hospitals and CHWs where an increasing proportion of elective surgeries are being performed. – Nick van der Walt, CEO, Insight Medical Systems.
With its exclusive surgical augmented reality eyepiece, ARVIS has been designed to be streamlined and cost effective, making it accessible to any facility where orthopedic surgery is performed.
“ARVIS is exciting because it is computerized navigation that uses the principles of minimization, precision and currently available equipment (helmets) with a minimal footprint in the operating room. The navigation camera moves from a large device. fixed to that of surgeon. This is the next step we were looking for. ” – Ayal Segal, MD
