Robotic External Fixation System

Smart external fixation system to allow real-time physician follow-up and to reduce dependency on patient compliance. Comprised of a strut powered by a lightweight motor and a control box placed on top of the circular, hexapod fixation frame, OrthoSpin’s system automatically and continuously adjusts and lengthens the struts according to the prescribed treatment regimen — without patient involvement. 

Our challenge was to design a product with many technical limitations and to provide creative solutions that would enable the interface between the mechanical elements and the human body.

The company’s proprietary software program allows physicians to chart patient progress and to change the treatment schedule if necessary.
