Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DESIGNING, ANALYZING AND USING ORTHOPAEDIC DEVICES
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS POUR LA CONCEPTION, L'ANALYSE ET L'UTILISATION DE DISPOSITIFS ORTHOPÉDIQUES
Abstract:
(EN) Methods and systems of customizing orthopaedic devices. The methods of some embodiments allow for receiving information about a surgical site of a patient, using the information about the surgical site to determine a surgical procedure step for creating an anatomic structure attribute, using information about the anatomic structure attribute to determine a custom attribute for an orthopaedic device, and manufacturing the orthopaedic device to include the custom attribute.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et des systèmes de personnalisation de dispositifs orthopédiques. Selon certains modes de réalisation, les procédés permettent de recevoir des informations relatives au site chirurgical d'un patient, d'utiliser les informations relatives au site chirurgical pour déterminer l'étape de procédure chirurgicale pour créer un attribut de structure anatomique, d'utiliser les informations relatives à l'attribut de structure anatomique pour déterminer un attribut personnalisé pour un dispositif orthopédique et de fabriquer le dispositif orthopédique comprenant l'attribut personnalisé.
