Mixed reality spine surgery glasses undergoing final FDA review

Spinal Tech

Taiwan Main Orthopaedic Biotechnology is developing surgical glasses equipped with augmented reality and mixed reality to improve accuracy and efficiency in spine surgery.

Caduceus S is designed to help surgeons set spine positioning fixtures and generate preoperative plans. The technology is in the FDA's final review process.

The Caduceus S spine navigation system features an AR/MR head-mounted display that superimposes a 3D model of the patient's spine, so surgeons can better understand the entry point, calculation of depth and angle of the instrument used — the surgical drills or pedicle screws being implanted.

The technology could reduce the learning curve in spine surgery and improve workflow in the OR, the company said in an Aug. 5 news release.
