Short description: Improperly positioned implant during complex bone surgery leads to implant failure, bone damage, and another surgery. Therefore, surgeons often need a guidance with 3D visualization. Mobile application with 3D presurgical plan could help a surgeon to minimize risks and improve a surgical outcome.
Market potential: In 2017, the number of orthopaedic surgery procedures performed worldwide totalled approx. 22.3 m. approaching 28.3 m. by 2022 (Orthopedic Surgery – Global Trends & Opportunities report, ct. 2018).
Timing: The solution is needed immediately – it will be integrated into workflow of challenge owner as soon as it will be developed.
Desired result: The desired outcomes of the solution is improved precision and efficiency of surgery processes, a much more clear and 3D visualization of transferring essential surgery information from planning stage to surgery implementation stage.
Information on challenge owner: Mid-size SME (50-259 staff).
Market presence of challenge owner: Global presence.
