Enovis Launches ARVIS®, Only Augmented Reality Surgical Guidance System Designed Specifically to Improve Both Total Hip and Knee Replacement Surgery
ARVIS offers orthopedic surgeons a wearable AR headset used during surgery to help accurately place hip and knee implants
AR technology is a form of orthopedic surgical guidance technology that helps surgeons place and align implants during surgery. Unlike other traditional robotic systems that require additional staff, ARVIS is a self-contained, wearable surgical guidance device controlled by the surgeon that can either be worn on an ARVIS headband or compatible with the helmets already worn in surgery. ARVIS is designed to ensure surgeons can focus on their patient – not a screen across the room – by empowering them with a hands-free view of the procedure.
“ARVIS was designed to provide surgeons with better information, more confidence and an enhanced surgical experience that integrates seamlessly into their procedural workflow without the need for obtrusive and unnecessary equipment,” said
ARVIS is the first system with proprietary hardware designed to assist surgeons in precisely placing hip and knee joint replacements, to help improve joint replacement recovery outcomes. ARVIS is more sustainable and environmentally friendly than other technologies as well, due to the elimination of single use plastic instruments and consumables requiring disposal. It is AR-supported surgery, through the eyes of the surgeon.
Hip or knee replacement is the standard treatment for osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis and the most common cause of disability in adults. Osteoarthritis involves degradation of the joint through the breakdown of cartilage, including articular cartilage and subchondral bone, according to the
“Having knee or hip replacement is a big decision for any patient. ARVIS provides me real-time feedback at the operative site and guides me as I make cuts and check measurements to ensure that the angles are correct for the best fit and alignment. The screens are located within my line of sight, so I never have to take my eyes off the patient,” said Dr.
