Medical technology company Enovis has announced the launch of Arvis, an augmented reality system that allows orthopedic surgeons to visualize precision when performing hip and knee surgeries.
Arvis is the U.S.' only FDA-cleared hands-free, real-time AR system for orthopedic surgeons, according to a July 19 press release.
Arvis is a wearable surgical device that can be worn either on a headband or a helmet during surgery, which allows surgeons a hands-free view of surgery without having to use screens on the other end of the room.
"Arvis is significantly smaller, but powerful and precise, with a more economical price than large robotic systems. In turn, it can be adopted and scaled by a wide array of ambulatory surgical centers and hospitals, meaning more access to more patients wishing to experience the benefits of a technology-assisted knee or hip replacement," said Louie Vogt, president and general manager of Enovis Surgical, in the release.
Arvis is also more environmentally friendly than other surgical GPS systems, as it eliminates the need for single-use plastic instruments.
Arvis was acquired by Enovis on July 5.
