This film showcases the TLEMsafe project https://www.tlemsafe.eu which aims to develop a patient-specific surgical navigation system. The system allows the surgeon to pre-plan and simulate the outcome of an extensive orthopaedic intervention. In addition, the navigation part of the system can be used to help the surgeon during complex musculoskeletal operations. The project is a collaboration between Radboud university medical center, University of Twente, Technical University of Warsaw, Brainlab, Materialise and AnyBody Technology. The project is financially supported by funding from the 7th Framework Programme of the EU.
AnyBody Technology's key contributions to the TLEMsafe project have been to design and implement 1) features to support accurate subject-specific modeling, 2) an Application Programming Interface (API) to enable tight-integration of AnyBody’s musculoskeletal model within a Virtual Reality environment with software to visualize medical images in 3D and with surgical planning software.
