More from Stryker: Augmented reality software, new nailing system
Stryker’s trauma and extremities division launched Adapt for Gamma3 software and the T2 Alpha nailing system. Adapt for Gamma3 uses augmented reality to project 3D-based measurements on patient X-rays. Adapt’s software may eliminate the need for certain hardware instrumentation while enabling surgeons to guide implant alignment, lag screw length determination, lag screw positioning and distal targeting, a company statement said.
T2 Alpha implants are designed to adapt to diverse intraoperative needs, addressing varying patient anatomy. T2 Alpha also has an advanced locking screw option for added axial and angular stability. It limits relative motion between the nail and screw, allowing surgeons to provide additional nail stability when needed, according to the company.
Stryker also debuted four visualization tools for arthroscopy — HipCheck, HipMap, the 1688 Advanced Imaging Modalities (AIM) 4K visualization platform, and the Connected OR Hub. HipCheck works as an interactive tablet integrating into existing OR workflow, calculating intraoperative measurements and working to make more accurate bone deformity measurements. It includes HipMap, a 3D imaging tool designed to improve pre-operative planning.
The 1688 AIM 4K platform has 4K resolution and fluorescence, auto-light technology, better ergonomics and seamless standardization, Stryker said. Approved for use in a variety of specialties, including arthroscopy, the platform’s light source features auto-light technology that automatically corrects poor lighting in posterior compartments and self-adjusts based on anatomy.
The Connected OR Hub allows surgeons to capture, record, stream and print images directly from the 1688 AIM 4K Platform. Surgeons can also use the hub to customize their respective surgeon profiles and desired tower settings to drive efficiency. It offers seamless connectivity between devices in the OR.
