Intelligent Instruments for OMNIBotics Surgery
New robotic ligament tension device allows surgeons to measure and predict soft tissue balance.
The OMNIBotics BalanceBot is the ONLY device to enable the surgeon to predictively balance knee ligaments utilizing dynamic real-time feedback through the entire range of motion. This handheld device collects data on the patient’s soft tissue tensions and joint gaps and the OMNIBotics software calculates a surgical plan that best fits the patient anatomy. The software can predict the joint gaps that would result from changes in bone resection plan, aiming to reduce post-resection soft tissue manipulation. The combination of the BalanceBot and the accuracy of the OMNI Robotic Cutting Guide makes possible a truly patient-specific procedure, with the possibility of improved outcomes.
OMNIBot™ Cutting Guide
Robotic Cutting Guide for OMNIBotics Total Knee Replacment
The OMNIBot is an evolution in navigation and robotic technology for total knee arthroplasty offering highly accurate positioning of the femoral cutting guide. It is a motorized cutting guide mounted directly to the patient that positions a saw guide for every femoral cut according to the surgeon's plan. This eliminates the need to manually position and pin any conventional cutting jigs, which can introduce errors in alignment and implant fit.
Adjustable cutting guide communicates with OMNIBotics workstation to ensure cut accuracy.
With other computer-assisted TKA procedures, attempting to navigate conventional cutting guides can often introduce errors in the final position of the jig with no capability to adjust the alignment without repositioning the guide. The NanoBlock simply allows the surgeon to attach the cut guide in approximate position and then fine-tune the alignment to match the surgical plan with the aid of the OMNIBotics knee software.
Mobile workstation includes full touch display, plus tough laptop for switching between multiple stations.
The new, robust OMNIBotics station is fully prepared for the operating room. With an interactive touch screen facing the surgeon and patient, surgical protocol is determined with a touch of the finger. An extended foot pedal allows the surgeon to move through the procedure step by step. The software runs off of a tough laptop, designed to withstand transport to and from workstations.
