Seattle-based Proprio designed Paradigm to replace traditional surgical navigation technologies. Using an advanced approach, it avoids the pitfalls that pull attention away from the patient and disrupt workflows.
According to a news release, Paradigm is the first such system to use light field technology in spine surgery navigation. This process creates a real-time view of the anatomy and surgical scene, Proprio said. The system features an advanced sensor suite to capture high-definition, multi-modal intraoperative images. It then fuses that information with preoperative scans.
With the platform, surgeons can access helpful data, Proprio said. That includes intraoperative imaging and powerful visualization capabilities. Plus, it operates without any harmful radiation or impediment to their workflow. Proprio calls this data fusion capability “Volumetric Intelligence.”
Other benefits include a reduction in radiation, an accelerated workflow, fast registration and continuous data capture. Proprio’s Paradigm can reduce workflow by up to 30 minutes per procedure and complete registration in seconds. It can collect approximately 250GB of data per hour, too.
“We are very enthusiastic about the potential for Paradigm to enable clinicians to revolutionize spine surgery,” said Gabriel Jones, CEO and co-founder of Proprio. “We’re reimagining how surgery is done, rather than reconfiguring legacy tools. This uniquely positions our system to effectively capture the valuable data needed to feed advanced computer vision and deep learning models to recognize, track and analyze complex anatomical structures.
“The potential of this technology in the hands of skilled clinicians has us all very optimistic about the future of surgical practice.”
