SLAM Orthopedic is developing a technology for orthopedic surgery, specifically fracture care using metal screws and plates. Our goal is to help surgeons operate more effectively and efficiently. To do this we have created a sensor that gathers data during drilling and shows the required screw length immediately. This eliminates the need for manual measurement of the bore depth which is imprecise and error-prone, improving the lives of the surgeons and the patients.
