"This innovative solution supported me in creating an accurate plan for the surgery with the 3D model of the patient's knee, and in precisely executing in the OR. Through the NextAR Smart Glasses, I needed have access to the plan at every step of the procedure, enriched by real-time information on the soft tissues, allowing me to tailor the position of the implant to the patient's anatomy".

Dr. Philippe Alves


"NextAR allows me to preoperatively tailor each patient's knee replacement outside of the OR whilst still having the added accuracy and assurance of intraoperative adjustment and validation."
