OrthoGrid Brings Artificial Intelligence to Hip Navigation

OrthoGrid Systems introduced the OrthoGrid Hip Artificial Intelligence (AI) application. Driven by artificial intelligence and machine learning, this Hip AI platform is reportedly the world's first intraoperative hip replacement navigation system.

The last technology innovation cycle in orthopedic navigation integrated robotics as an extension of an optical tracking system that is a few decades old. Its automated robotic arm solves an execution issue that is mechanical in nature, holding a cutting block or saw, primarily receiving information, not processing it. These systems still require pin placement, manual registration, pre-operative imaging, a dedicated operator and extensive training with certification.

In comparison, data-driven AI-powered technology may offer the ability to actively respond to and enhance the surgeon's performance throughout every phase of surgery. The company claims that OrthoGrid AI automatically registers a patient's specific anatomy, identifies instruments and implants, and processes the data in accordance with a surgeon's established workflow in real time.

According to the company's press release, OrthoGrid's applications are designed to be intuitive and effective for all stakeholders.
