Insight Medical Completes Cadaver Lab with ARVIS Augmented Reality Visualization

 Insight Medical Systems conducted its first cadaveric evaluation of the ARVIS™ Augmented Reality Visualization and Information System.

Surgeons achieved three landmark goals by navigating a distal femoral and tibial resection in a knee procedure, navigating an acetabular cup position according to their preferred approach and measuring leg length and joint offset.

ARVIS, an alternative to large and more costly surgical robots and navigation systems, features a standalone surgical headset that projects virtual models of the patient’s anatomy into the surgeon’s field of view during the procedure, revealing structures beneath the surface. The system includes a single tray of trackable instruments, and visualization includes models of implants and instruments in relation to interior anatomy, with a display of measurements associated with orientation and positioning.

After the lab, Michael Alexiades, M.D. stated, “The cadaver lab for both hip and knee replacement has shown me ARVIS is intuitive and natural to use, and highlights that the potential of this technology is not for the far future, but is ready to implement now.”

“The lab was a great success and we are pleased to have reached this important milestone,” said Nick van der Walt, Insight’s founder and CEO. “It was exciting to see ARVIS working in a surgical environment for the first time. We’re looking forward to completing the development of the product and obtaining FDA clearance.”
