Anesthesiology

Spinal needle injection procedures are used for anesthesia and analgesia, such as lumbar epidurals. These procedures require careful placement of a needle, both to ensure effective therapy delivery and to avoid damaging sensitive tissue such as the spinal cord. An important step in such procedures is the accurate identification of the vertebral levels.

We are actively developing VOKA. Anesthesio. This augmented reality system intended to identify lumbar vertebral levels to assist in the process of spinal needle insertion for epidural anesthesia delivery. These procedures require careful placement of a needle to ensure effective delivery of anesthetics and to avoid damaging sensitive tissue such as nerves.

VOKA. Anesthesio provides for accurate lumbar level identification, overall system accuracy, and the effect of changes in the curvature of the spine during examination.
