Stryker recently launched its Ortho Q Guidance system designed specifically for orthopedic surgical services. The system, according to the company, has new optical tracking options like a “re-designed, state-of-the-art camera with sophisticated algorithms” that works in combination with the newly launched Ortho Guidance software for Express Knee, Precision Knee, and Versatile Hip. Together, the system and software work to plan and guide orthopedic surgeons in the operating room and enhance procedural speed and efficiency.
Of note, Ortho Q only utilizes a small area of the operating room or ACS setting, and according to the company, is the only fully autonomous system in the industry.
Other Ortho Q product features include a robotics-ready platform with dual PCs and a quick-refresh camera and triathlon implant dedicated software so that surgeons can obtain clinical feedback.
Implant agnostic software is also available, which allows surgeons to use an implant of choice. The use of the implant agnostic software, according to Stryker, enables “facilities the ability to meet the needs of the entire service line in one platform.”
"Ortho Q was designed specifically for our orthopedic customers and is the culmination of a multiyear collaboration between teams in India, Germany and the United States,” said Bill Scott, vice president and general manager of Stryker's Orthopaedic Instruments business. “This platform builds a foundation for the future of orthopedic surgical capability."
