"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.
