Much like the heads-up displays in automobiles that pro- vide information such as route guidance projected onto the windshield, allowing the driver to keep his eyes on the road, Arvis can display surgical case informa- tion in the surgeon's field of view, preventing breaks in concentra- tion or loss of orientation in the joint. When paired with spatial navi- gation and visual-tracking technology, the possibility of augmented reality projections could lead to improved implant and hardware posi- tioning by syncing up the surgeon's view with the display currently seen on navigation software already in use. Though very new and unproven, this technology has enormous promise to narrow the range of errors typically seen in highly technical procedures done by vari- ably skilled surgeons.
