aMDI develops a new technology for spine surgery training
February 01, 2018
aMDI is co-developing, with Holland-based medical device manufacturer
Encoris, a new technology that replaces cadavers for minimally
invasive spine surgery training. The project includes the design of a
multi-angle camera system for the S2T Surgical SmartTrainer that mimic
x-rays images. This reduces the need for cadavers and exposure of
medical students to harmful X-rays during training for spinal surgeries.
aMDI Executive Director Dr. Brent Nowak spoke highly of the device’s potential. “‘The idea is that you would use this spine to train two or three doctors, then take it out and put another spine in. You can keep reusing this rather than having to keep doing surgeries on cadavers’”.
