Medtech manufacturer Ortoma has partnered with Swedish technology company Semcon to further develop its AI-powered operation system than can improve hip joint, knee joint and back surgery.
The partnership has signed a framework agreement which will see Semcon provide specialist skills in software development and technical product information.
“This collaboration is a great example of how digital solutions really help people and it clearly shows how we can contribute to innovative solutions through our assignments at Semcon”, said Oskar Åkerlund, team manager, software & emerging tech at Semcon.
Using the Ortoma Treatment Solution (OTS) system surgeons can plan operations in 3D and have ability to identify optimal positioning for an implant in the patient. OTS can also be used for navigation during the operation, as well as support in the post-operative medical follow-up of a patient.
“Ortoma is an exciting new customer for us at Semcon and we look forward to supporting the company in the development of systems with artificial intelligence in order to support enhanced and streamlined surgical procedures,” added Åkerlund.
