Surgeons Could Benefit from Microsoft HoloLens

Microsoft HoloLens, is a pair of mixed reality smartglasses developed and manufactured by Microsoft. HoloLens gained popularity for being one of the first computers running the Windows Mixed Reality platform under the Windows 10 operating system.

Since the HoloLens was introduced, Microsoft has pitched it as both a gaming peripheral and a practical assistant in the workplace. Scopis, a company specializing in surgical navigation and medical augmented and mixed reality technologies, announced recently the launch of its newest development, the Holographic Navigation Platform for use in surgery. This platform will offer greater precision and speed to surgeons, and better outcomes to patients undergoing open and minimally-invasive spinal procedures. The added innovation of incorporating Microsoft HoloLens into the Scopis Navigation Platform lets surgeons plan the positioning and alignment of pedicle screws during multiple vertebrae fixation surgeries, for example.

Using visual overlay technology would also cut down on the radiation exposure that comes with the current spine-envisioning method of fluoroscopy. Wearing the wireless HoloLens headset is far less cumbersome than prior mixed reality setups.

  2. Greetings! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thanks!

    1. Hello,
      If your website is wordpress based, a responsive theme will make it appear good in a cellphone screen. I think most of the latest wordpress themes such as twentysixteen, twentyseventeen, etc. are responsive. There are many options. Also you can search for “responsive” at the add new theme option within your wordpress dashboard. MH magazine lite, colormag lite, etc are also responsive themes.
