Scopis launched a Holographic Navigation Platform for use in surgery using the Microsoft Hololens. As Scopis is claiming, the Company has „developed this platform to offer higher precision and speed to surgeons, and better outcomes to patients undergoing open and minimally-invasive spinal procedures“. Their target application is planning of the positioning and alignment of pedicle screws during multiple vertebrae fixation surgeries, for example.
“Scopis’ holographic solution has the potential to make spine surgery more effective, safe, and precise,” said Professor Christian Woiciechowsky, Chief of the Spinal Surgery Clinic at Vivantes Humboldt Hospital in Berlin. “Integrating mixed-reality tools into surgery is a huge technological advancement toward enhancing a surgeon’s vision and may provide greater benefits to patients.”
