Augmented Reality

OR Management and Preperation of Medical Devices at UKSH

Everything networked: Robots and augmented reality in the OR, AGVs in the Central Sterilization Department, pneumatic tube system and automatic unit-dose system

Networking + Digitalization = World Class in one of the most modern clinics in Europe

The Kiel hybrid operating theater celebrated a world premiere in 2018. For the first time, an 'Augmented Reality'- based navigation technology for minimally invasive spinal and pelvic surgery was used during an operation.

In autumn 2019, the system, which had been optimized in terms of quality and precision, was used for the first time in a clinical study currently underway. The stateof- the-art system links 3D views, which are recorded by an X-ray system, with virtual images of the patient. Both scans and their respective image information are combined using data technology, so that when viewing the image result, the surgeon gets the impression that he has the patient's spine right in front of him/her.

These special procedures are part of more than 31,500 operations that take place annually at the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH) in Kiel. The coordination of all operations requires the highest performance of OR management. The provision of surgical instruments and consumables from the Reprocessing Unit for Medical Devices will be secured by robots in the future. The innovations in Kiel contribute to making the University Hospital one of the most modern hospitals in Europe.
