The xvision system, the first augmented reality guidance system for surgery, allows surgeons to see the patient’s anatomy through skin and tissue as if they have “x-ray vision,” and to accurately guide instruments and implants during spine procedures.
Today, most surgical robots are fully controlled by surgeons, and lack the ability to assist the surgeon with decision making. The missing element for smart robotic surgery is an advanced computing system that collects information during the procedure and can make suggestions accordingly.
Traditional Image Guidance System
Surgeon looking at distant screen
IR line-of-sight interrupted by other team members standing between camera and patient
Lengthy set-up time
Image Guidance with xvision
Projects 3D spinal anatomy directly on the patient
Surgeon has full control of IR line-of-sight with headset
Surgeon can visually track instruments within the working field without averting their eyes from the patient
Open platform from both an 3D imaging and implant perspective
Augmedics announced that it won FDA 510(k) clearance for and initiated the U.S. launch of its Xvision Spine augmented reality guidance
