Teikyo University Okinaga Research Institute of Japan has combined AR, VR, or MR with robotic-assisted surgery. This helps in alleviating surgeon fatigue. Also, it holds the potential to increase the precision of spinal realignment and stabilization. Increasing precision and consistency has become a primary objective of this technology in this context to reduce surgical time, alleviate the physical burden on the surgeon.

Robotic Spine Surgery

The Bio-Medico University of Rome has worked in innovation in robotic spine surgery. Robotic spine surgery comprehends 3 major categories:

  • Telesurgical robotic systems,
  • Robotic-assisted navigation (RAN), and
  • Virtual augmented reality (AR) systems, including AR and virtual reality.

A robotic assistant is composed of an arm and a navigation camera with a floor-flexible base that does not need to be attached to the patient. It is equipped with a stereoscopic camera to track patient movements and readjust robot position in real-time, providing an accurate and safe pedicle screw placement and avoiding the risk of neurological injuries

Innovative Applications

Navigating the sensor tip makes it particularly suitable for easy and safe access to any spinal target.


Intracs® em Navigation System can be integrated into the joimax® Endoscopic Tower or used as a stand-alone solution. Existing installations can be easily upgraded. The high-quality medical-grade PC with a 22“ touch display is completely sealed and, therefore, easy to clean and disinfect.

The Intracs® em Field Generator is mounted onto the specially designed Intracs® em Mounting Arm. Most of the joimax® instruments are navigated with the highest accuracy through various Intracs® em sensors. As a result, the procedure can be carried out without constant X-ray control. Intervention time and radiation exposure are drastically reduced.

Brainlab technology powers treatments in radiosurgery and radiotherapy as well as numerous surgical fields including neurosurgery, orthopedic, ENT, CMF, spine, and trauma. Brainlab Spinal Navigation delivers accurate pedicle screw placement and enables drastic reduction of X-Ray exposure.

Report on Future Directions of Spine Navigation

Accurately plan incisions and trajectories with any instrument. It supports implant placement especially in anatomically critical areas Guides in the posterior incision and approaches for minimally invasive surgeries. It also reduces X-Ray exposure to the surgical team and patients. Plan incisions and trajectories at skin level. Visualize instruments on 2D images, 3D scans, MR or CT scans in real-time

Transformative Companies

Proprio Vision founded in 2016 is a Seattle, WA(US) based start-up, developing a system for real-time immersive video and mediated reality interaction. We are using cutting-edge algorithms and custom hardware to enhance human capabilities in high-precision activities such as brain or spine surgery.

Augmedics founded in 2014, is in Arlington Heights, IL(US) based startup which develops xvision™ – an Augmented-Reality Head-Mounted Display for spine surgery. Xvision allows surgeons to see the patient’s anatomy through skin and tissue as if they had “X-Ray Vision”. Based on Augmedics’ patented technology, the xvision system can project the patient’s anatomy, in real-time, directly onto the surgeon’s retina, with surgical precision and outstanding depth perception.

Report on Global Market Trends For Spine Navigation by Signicent

Augmented Reality Receives Global Attention

With the growth of navigation, innovation is paramount to improve safety and efficiency. Improved monitors for visualization, optimized operating suites for navigation, smaller registration trackers are all areas that are receiving current attention. optimizing navigation through innovation in platforms.

Based on our preliminary research findings, it is likely that platforms will continue to innovate to optimize the use of navigation. Eg. Brainlab’s Airo Mobile v augmented reality (AR/VR).

Innovation that will continue to be implemented is the use of augmented reality headsets with navigation in real-time. These headsets are directly overlaid on the patient, instead of a screen. In our opinion, once this technology becomes more end-user friendly its implementation will increase significantly. E.g. ClarifEye Augmented Reality Surgical Navigation VCO-registration to improve accuracy.

CT-MRI (or other combination) co-registration is another feature that can enhance Computer-Assisted Navigation application in patients presenting with soft tissue masses without bony involvement.

Robotic Assisted Surgery- The Future Technology

It is another current expansion opportunity for navigation, though its cost may be prohibitive in some situations. E.g. MAZOR X STEALTH EDITION.
