IntelliSense Drill Technology®
What is IntelliSense Drill Technology®?
There is now an innovative, patented, technology that assists surgeons in the drilling process that could change the standard of care for the better. It’s called, IntelliSense Drill Technology®. This innovative HandHeld Robotic technology uses multiple sensors to automatically stop the drilling process once bone has been penetrated. It senses depth and provides the surgeon with a precise and accurate depth measurement automatically so they can decide on a screw size. The IntelliSense Drill Technology® could improve outcomes, lower cost and save time in common orthopedic surgeries.
IntelliSense Drill displays the depth of drilling, accurate to tenths of a millimeter. This means your surgeon can better choose the correct screw size. It could eliminate "too long" or "too short" screws.
Surgeons currently use their "feel" to stop on the far side of the bone. IntelliSense Drill automatically stops the drill motor upon breach of the desired cortex. This may help ensure that critical structures past the bone are not damaged.
During your surgery, your surgeon probably took several x-rays to determine if the screw was placed correctly. With IntelliSense Drill, they may eliminate most intra-operative x-rays because they may be more confident in the correct screw size. This can be good for you and the OR team!
Orthopedic screws are expensive! They can range from $100-$1500. When a screw is misplaced, it is thrown away. This may increase costs to the hospital, insurance and you! IntelliSense Drill may decrease the amount of wasted screws. It also may eliminate the cost of repeat surgeries to correct screw placement and size.
