FDA greenlights Augmedics’ AR system for spinal surgery

Augmedics’ AR system is now approved by the U.S. FDA. According to the company it is the first device certified for guided surgery. The “Xvision Spine system” allows surgeons to place spine implant with a amazing precision and without looking away the patient. The possibility to see “through the skin” is also a good way to promote minimal invasive methods.

Augmedics Inc., a Chicago-based startup focused on augmented reality (AR) applications in health care, has scored a 510(k) clearance from the U.S. FDA for its Xvision Spine system. The company launched the device, which provides surgeons with X-ray quality insights into a patient’s anatomy and real-time surgical navigation, on Monday, with distribution slated to begin in the new year.
