App helps orthopedic surgeons plan procedures

Tel Aviv based Voyant Health‘s TraumaCad Mobile app helps orthopedic surgeons plan operations and create result simulations.  The system offers modules for  hip, knee, deformity, pediatric, upper limb, spine, foot and ankle, and trauma surgery.  The iPad app mobile version of this decade old system was recently approved by the FDA.

Surgeons can securely import medical images from the cloud or hospital imaging systems to perform measurements, fix prostheses, simulate osteotomies, and visualize fracture reductions. The app overlays prosthesis templates on radiological images and includes tools for performing measurements on the image and positioning the template.  In total hip replacement surgery, it automatically aligns implants and assembles components to calculate leg length discrepancy and offset.
