Moving digital medicine into the operating room has become a key advancement in the dramatic advancement of surgery.
Augmented Reality Computer Surgical Navigation System
FDA 510(k) clearance
Taiwan's first AR spine surgery navigation system to obtain TFDA Class II medical device license
Ministry of Health Medical Devices No. 007161 （TFDA）
Ministry of Health Medical Devices No. 007725 （TFDA）
Augmented Reality Surgery Features – Focus on FOV
AR Augmented Reality Surgery Features – Focus on FOV Although there are devices on the market for spinal surgical navigation for conventional and minimally invasive pedicle screw placement, there are still some inherent difficulties with conventional navigation systems in terms of ergonomics and efficiency of integration with the surgeon's workflow. Traditional two-dimensional (2D) spinal navigation requires taking the focus from the FOV away to observe the image data on an external display screen, then translating it to the instruments being operated on during surgery and tactilely identifying the three-dimensional (3D) position. The disruption of this shift in vision and the inevitable shift in attention has had an impact on the cognitive load and workflow optimization during surgery.
Caduceus S AR extends the benefit of navigation system realistically
According to the restrictions of local authority, the radiation dose received by the general public in a year shall not exceed 5 millisieverts, while the radiation dose of a computerized tomography scan is about 1.5-2 millisieverts1, especially for patients who need to undergo surgery. Pay more attention to radiation protection.

Radiation Exposure Carcinogenic Risk
Ultra Low Mode
A large amount of radiation exposure will seriously affect the health of the human body. The resulting radiation damage will increase the risk of leukemia, and the removal of bone marrow will affect the hematopoietic function. Spine surgery glasses navigation system provides ultra-low radiation mode, no need to take computerized tomography (CT) that will produce high radiation, just take 2 to 4 X-rays before the operation starts to affect the positioning and start the operation, no need during the operation Taking X-ray images again greatly reduces the risk of radiation exposure for patients and medical staff.
