Let a robot tend your fixation device after leg surgery
By Abigail Klein Leichman, Israel21c
Unique Israeli external orthopedic fixation system allows for objective measurement, ease of use and peace of mind for orthopedic patients.
After performing complex surgery to correct a leg-bone deformity in a 15-year-old from Jerusalem, pediatric orthopedic surgeon Dr. Eitan Segev explained to the patient and his parents that they now faced a critical responsibility.
But for the first time in his long career, Segev was able to offer an alternative: The young patient could be the first human to try a “smart” robotic external orthopedic fixation system from Israeli startup OrthoSpin.
The OrthoSpin system makes precise pre-programmed adjustments of the fixation device automatically and continuously without human intervention. Integrated software enables the surgeon to chart patient progress remotely and, if necessary, quickly adjust the treatment regimen.
The boy and his parents agreed to give it a try.
