ARVIS®. Surgical guidance technology.

Designed to improve accuracy during joint replacement, which may lead to less pain.

ARVIS is an augmented reality (AR) technology that assists your surgeon during joint replacement surgery. Your surgeon and ARVIS work together to help achieve precise and accurate implant placement. Studies show that precisely placed joint replacements can lead to shorter recovery times and less pain.1

What is augmented reality?

Augmented reality, commonly called AR, is an interactive 3D experience that combines a view of the real world with a computer-generated overlay in real time. ARVIS is the only AR technology specifically designed for both hip and knee joint replacement surgery and joint replacement that uses a proprietary technology worn by your surgeon, unlike other technologies that have been only retrofitted for surgery.

Surgery with arvis.

Accurate placement and alignment of hip or knee implant components are critical to a long-lasting joint replacement.1 ARVIS uses AR technology to provide your surgeon real-time information to help with precise and accurate implant placement.

How it Works

Step 1

ARVIS is placed on your surgeon’s head via a surgical helmet or headband before surgery begins.

Step 2

Your surgeon will attach trackers to your knee or hip. ARVIS uses infrared cameras to locate the trackers, thereby letting the computer know where your knee or hip is in space.

Step 3

Your surgeon will register a series of landmarks on your bone, which allows ARVIS to create a model of your specific knee or hip anatomy.

Step 4

Your surgeon will see an overlay of real-time surgical guidance information on the operating room table, allowing them to optimally position the implant into your unique anatomy.

Your surgeon is always in control.

ARVIS allows your surgeon to tailor your procedure based on your unique knee or hip anatomy. And rather than your surgeon looking at a monitor across the room, as is typical with robotic systems, your surgeon can keep their eyes on you during your surgery.

What are the potential risks?

As with any implant surgery, the possible adverse effects of undergoing joint replacement surgery using ARVIS augmented reality include premature implant failure, dislocation, or instability, decreased range of motion, limping, infection, tissue injury, nerve injury and weakness, fracture, foreign body reaction, increased anesthesia time, heart attack, vascular injury, neck injury, burns, electrical shock, and cardiovascular injury.
