NextAR Shoulder leverages Medacta's experience and know-how in personalized 3D planning tools. The MyShoulder preoperative planning suite offers solutions to accurately plan even the most challenging case.
ACCURATE PRE-OP PLANNING
The MyShoulder CT-based preoperative planning suite offers a complete 3D personalized planning to support the surgeon in the decision-making process.
HOW TO MAKE IT EASIER?
Listen Prof. Seybold's successful experience managing a glenoid defect using MyShoulder preoperative planning and NextAR intraoperative guidance!
DESIGNED FOR THE PATIENT
Watch Dr. Pokorny-Olsen's experience with MyShoulder and the positive outcomes for her patient.
"In the past we used to plan the prosthesis on conventional x-rays. This is a 2D method and there has always been a source of error. Now we have gone one step further by being able to plan the whole prosthesis virtually by creating a 3D model."
Have a look at Prof. B. Jost explaining how MyShoulder has supported him managing challenging cases.
NextAR Shoulder redefines the idea of accuracy in the O.R. by providing complete, precise and real-time intraoperative guidance during bone preparation and implant placement.
UNIQUE INTRA-OP GUIDANCE
Listen to W. Cox, M.D. talking about his experience with NextAR Shoulder.
“I love innovation, I love trying to be better for the sake of being better. NextAR gave me real-time confidence that I knew exactly what my postop x-ray was going to look like."
“Now, with the augmented reality, we see what’s beyond the shoulder in a clear way” said PD Dr. med. O. Rolf. Listen to him!
PRECISE K-WIRE INSERTION
NextAR Shoulder guides you in inserting the k-wire exactly where you planned with an average deviation of 0.6° for angular measurements and 0.6mm for distance measurements with respect to the intraoperative planning.
NextAR Shoulder offers real-time information about the glenoid implant seating, which is fundamental for the correct positioning of the baseplate. NextAR Shoulder guides you in managing the glenoid implant medial-lateral offset with an average deviation of 0.6mm with respect to the intraoperative planning.
ACCURATE SCREW DRILLING
Would you like to choose the screw length and direction to achieve the best bone purchase? NextAR Shoulder shows you the real-time positioning of the glenoid screws directly in the CT images.

"Planning and virtual visualization of the positioning during the surgical procedure is already provided in the community. The step forward of this technology is the real transfer of the planning into the surgical procedure, defined as augmented reality, using intraoperative guidance. We think that NextAR Shoulder represents a great answer to this challenging next step".
Prof. Dr. med. Matthias A. Zumstein
"The advantage of NextAR technology is in allowing me to precisely and accurately replicate my pre-operative plan in real time, during surgery, without having to look away from my patient for navigation assistance.".
John-Erik Bell, M.D.
"Sometimes you think you are at a certain angle or location and no matter how many you do, your baseplate could have been a smidge lower, you should have used a different length screw etc. NextAR gave me real-time confidence that I knew exactly what my post-op x-ray was going to look like".
Wesley Cox, M.D.
