Wright Medical Group N.V. Announces First Shoulder Arthroplasty Procedure Using BLUEPRINT™ Mixed Reality Technology
Palmisano continued, “In addition to Dr. Sanchez-Sotelo, we would like to recognize and thank the entire surgeon team who have been integral to the development of this groundbreaking platform:
The Mixed Reality Application is the latest addition to Wright’s BLUEPRINT ecosystem and enables a surgeon to maintain a direct view of the surgical site and simultaneously visualize and manipulate a holographic representation of the patient’s native anatomy and pre-operative plan. By using hand gestures and voice commands, the surgeon can interact with a more robust data set to optimize the position of the 3-D holographic models displayed by the Mixed Reality application. This can allow the surgeon to replicate the pre-operative plan as closely as possible given the availability of information while operating.
Dr. Sanchez-Sotelo, stated, “I was able to visualize, rotate, and tilt three-dimensional holographic objects right in front of the surgical field. As mixed reality continues to develop, it will provide a very unique, cost-effective tool for execution of our surgical plan.”
