Utah Patent of the Month – March 2023

OrthoGrid Systems Inc. has patented its innovative artificial intelligence (AI) platform which provides intraoperative surgical guidance and decision-making support. OrthoGrid’s AI system can be used in various surgical procedures, including total hip arthroplasty and trauma surgery.

The OrthoGrid AI system is designed to guide surgeons during a surgical procedure by providing real-time feedback on the placement of an implant or the reduction of a bone fragment. The system is trained on a dataset that includes surgical images, which enables it to calculate the intraoperative surgical decision risks and provide an intraoperative visual display showing surgical guidance. The AI system applies at least one classification algorithm to show intraoperative surgical decision risks.

The system’s dynamic guidance indicator is generated by an artificial intelligence engine that generates a grid data predictive map. The AI system aligns the intraoperative image with the grid data predictive map to generate a dynamic guidance indicator. The indicator is color-coded to differentiate between optimal and sub-optimal positioning of an implant or bone alignment.

The AI system is a game-changer for surgeons, as it provides real-time decision-making support during a surgical procedure. The system’s ability to detect risks and hazards during a surgical event is a significant advancement in the field of surgical guidance. The AI system’s dynamic guidance indicator and surgical guidance features help surgeons make informed decisions during a surgical procedure, reducing the risk of sub-optimal outcomes and potential surgical failure. The company’s applications are already supporting hundreds of surgeons in world- renown healthcare centers in the U.S. and in Japan.
