An Instrument Mounted Mini-Display for Introperative Guidance in Hip Surgery

4 pagesPublished: June 13, 2017


A new mini-display has been developed which is directly mounted to navigated surgical instruments. It receives signals from the navigation system and visualizes information how to guide to the instrument in order to reach the pre-planned target pose. Thus the surgeon does not need to change his eye- focus between the operating area and the computer screen of the navigation system. the proposed visualization symbols provide all information for instrument positioning in an intuitive way.
