The surgical tech company Scopis, recently launched a Microsoft HoloLens Program for Spine Surgery. The Program provides a hands free display and overlay that indicates exactly where the surgeon should operate.
Augmented reality is actually considered a pretty obvious fit for surgeons since it offers hands free and seamless way to access digital information while performing delicate operations.
HoloLens is said to add benefit of projecting images that seem to exist in physical space. The system however doesn’t totally rely on Microsoft’s internal tracking sensors.
The Doctors will be able to see little constellations of the rigid body markers on the headset and tools, which offer precise tracking which is particularly important when you are operating on someone’s spine.
Below is the video which provides a hands free display of spine surgery.
