DOCSF Podcast: DOCSF Science-Sensors and AR/VR in Orthopaedics

In this episode, Fabrizio Billi, DOCSF Science Director, and Lee Grossman, CEO at OREF, moderate a discussion around six papers on sensors, extended reality, virtual reality, and augmented reality in orthopedics.


In the first session about sensors, we hear from Jeffrey Lotz, Vice Chair of Research in Orthopedic Surgery at UCSF, and Cory Calendine, an orthopedic surgeon. The panel reviews three papers on electronics as diagnostic and therapeutic tools, stretchable and suitable fiber sensors for wireless monitoring of connective tissue strains, and sensor-embedded fracture plates to quantify fracture healing. The panel agrees that this technology has a long way to go but will deliver data insights effectively.

During the second session, discussing the papers about XR, VR, and AR, Fabrizio and Lee are joined by Sigurd Berven, Chief of Spine Service at UCSF, and Louis Rosenberg, CEO at Unanimous AI. The panel discusses three papers about trauma patient care simulation that uses extended reality technology in a hybrid emergency room, clinical accuracy through augmented reality, and orthopedic navigation by an AR platform. Even though this seems to be where this XR/VR/AR technology is heading, they all agree that the accuracy is compromised sometimes, and there is room for improvement.

Listen to this episode for two exciting sessions on how sensors, XR, VR, and AR are being developed to assist orthopedic providers and patients!
