Advanced tools designed to deliver procedural efficiency and improved patient-specific results
Stryker announced today the launch of transformative visualization tools designed to enhance the surgical experience for arthroscopy—HipCheck, HipMap, the 1688 Advanced Imaging Modalities (AIM) 4K Visualization Platform, and the Connected OR Hub.
"We're committed to helping lead the advancement of innovation in sports medicine," said Brent Ladd, President of Stryker's Endoscopy division. "We understand surgeons need to not only visualize anatomy intraoperatively with the highest level of color reproduction and clarity, but also to plan preoperatively for each individual patient. We are extremely excited about the potential this combined platform provides our customers for optimal and customized surgical care."
"The visualization quality of the 1688 Platform is very impressive – images are extremely clear and bright, and the auto-light feature allows us to look at the back of the knee or bottom of the shoulder without the difficulty we had before," said Dr. Benjamin Ma, Chief of the UCSF Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service. "The Connected OR Hub is also a huge improvement with workflow to get images stored in our electronic medical records."
Stryker will debut these new technologies at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) from March 13-15, 2019 at booth #443.
