Working towards the OR of the future
Increasing numbers of medical devices are being used in the operating theatre, each with highly complex functions. Moreover, devices are now frequently used in parallel, requiring the simultaneous attention of the user. Intuitive operation of the devices while concentrating fully on the patient is thus becoming far more difficult.
This problem can be solved by the "OR of the future". Renowned medical device manufacturers are working together to achieve safe dynamic integration of different devices in the OR and the hospital – on the basis of an open, standardised communication protocol.
