Surgeons around the world stand for hours in twisted and uncomfortable positions to save their patients’ lives.
In 70% of all surgeries, surgeons have to adopt unnatural postures that lead to fatigue and pain.
As a result, 40 per cent of surgeons regularly take painkillers.
This leads not only to fatigue and chronic pain, but also to a loss of concentration and performance, resulting in errors during surgery.
Hellstern Medical has developed the patented NOAC together with surgeons: A support system for surgeons.
NOAC adapts to the surgeon’s body position and holds the body in any desired position thanks to intelligent movement detection on the operating table. This prevents back and knee pain. This leads to fewer errors and a better quality of work.
Through better OR utilisation and fewer treatment errors, the clinic increases its profitability.
The global market for surgical devices such as Noac has a potential of €9.6 billion with a compound annual growth rate of 9.8%. The main drivers for growth are rising healthcare costs, an ageing population and increasing numbers of operations.
There are more than 120,000 operating theatres in OECD countries, and 10,500 in the DACH region alone.
