The leading education technology event in the Nordics, the KnowHow EdTech conference, went online this year, as part of the smart city conference Nordic Edge Expo. Nordic Edge, a non-profit organisation promoting solutions for smarter cities and communities is an associate partner in the 360ViSi project.
Petteri Joenpolvi, CEO of company ADESANTE, a start-up established out of the 360ViSi partner ADE, presented extended reality (XR) which is a new technology covering virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR).
“Every year 310 million patients are going through surgical procedures, and 50 million of them are experiencing some kind of complications. In the US, for example, 4000 people are injured every year due to surgical failures, of which 33 % experience permanent injury and 7 % wrongful death,” he explains.
ADESANTE has developed XR solutions for viewing medical images, planning surgical procedures, training surgeons and medical students and support surgery.
The XR solution is used by University hospitals and General hospitals. It’s easy to operate and gives you a precise overview of the human anatomy. It’s perfect for planning a surgical procedure and give the surgeons a better understanding of how to avoid surgical failures.
“Through ADE, the 360ViSi project will benefit from the expertise also from ADESANTE”, says the project manager Atle Løkken.
