Precision Orthopaedic Surgery and Precision Orthopaedic Rehabilitation: A Novel Integrated Approach

4 pagesPublished: June 13, 2017

Abstract

Orthopaedic surgery is one of the first fields where robotic tools have been used and currently their use is growing thanks to the benefits and advantages of robotics. During the last two decades several robotic devices characterized by high accuracy during both the preoperative and intraoperative phases have been developed. The success of the rehabilitation treatment, which is complementary to the surgical phase, is crucial to the complete recovery of functions: however although computer-assisted navigation is more precise than the conventional techniques, it is still subject to errors. The aim of this study is to present an integrated approach, named "Precision Orthopaedic Surgery - Precision Orthopaedic Rehabilitation" (POS-POR), based on new applications for orthopaedic trauma treatment and rehabilitation.
