GestSure Technologies makes surgeries safer, faster and less expensive
by allowing surgeons to access their case imagery while operating.
A stubborn problem
In the operating room, a surgeon relies on an array of MRI and CT scans as visual references to perform procedures. But they can't navigate those images because the keyboard and mouse that control them aren't sterile.
To get around this, the surgeon is forced to scrub out, consult the imagery, and then leave the operating room to scrub back in. This process can take up to 10 minutes: Precious time when a patient is anesthetized, and expensive at an OR time cost of $700.
The surgeon's other option is to wait for a non-sterile circulating nurse to become available, but that too takes time - and the nurse doesn't know the case or the anatomy the way the surgeon does.
An elegant solution
The GestSure system uses advanced sensors that allow the surgeon to access their imagery through simple hand gestures.
From their operating table position, the surgeon employs a simple set of gestural commands that allows them to do anything they would with a conventional mouse.
And as advanced as Gesture's technology is, to the operating room computer it's no different than a standard USB input device. That means there's no need to install special software or drivers, and requires minimal hospital IT support. In fact, it's compatible with all medical imaging viewers, today.
