DJO Invests in Insight Medical Systems, Augmented Reality Tool

DJO made a strategic investment in Insight Medical Systems, developer of ARVIS® (Augmented Reality Visualization and Information System).

ARVIS will combine tracking cameras with both a 3D display and handsfree interface in an integrated eyepiece for total joint arthroplasty. The ARVIS system will be compatible with existing surgical helmets, while a single tray of trackable instruments eliminates the need for disposables.

Insight will leverage DJO’s sales channel to launch ARVIS in 2H21. The EMPOWR™ Partial, Primary and Complex Primary Knee and Hip systems will be compatible.

This investment follows news that DJO's parent company, Colfax Corporation, announced its intention to split into two public companies to sharpen its strategic focus and capitalize on its medical technology business opportunities.

Louis Vogt, President and General Manager of DJO Surgical®, said, “The Insight team has developed an impressive 3D AR technology that tracks the surgeon’s viewpoint and delivers navigation and patient-specific information right at the surgical site in a highly efficient and seamless workflow. ARVIS complements DJO’s ASC 360™ solutions and adds to our full range of implant technologies, surgical tools and digital care solutions that uniquely span the continuum of care.”
