Vuzix announced that Pixee Medical, a France-based medical company, in collaboration with Dr. Jérôme Villeminot and his team from Clinique St Odile in Haguenau, France, have successfully validated a new milestone by using Knee+, the first total knee replacement AR navigation system, solely guided by the Vuzix M400 AR Smart Glasses. The Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses running the Knee+ solution provided real time navigation throughout the surgery, displaying essential augmented reality information in the surgeon's field of view.

The most recent surgery also marked the first ambulatory surgery using Pixee's MIS solution.  During the last 2 months, Pixee successfully achieved the first round of the Knee+ clinical validation program. This major milestone starts a second round of validation, opening the way to a first limited commercialization of their innovative solution in November 2020.  Pixee has a growing list of surgeons and orthopedic manufacturers worldwide interested in trying this innovation using the Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses. The combination is compact, easy to use, wireless and does not require disposables, says a press release.

“The team at Pixee Medical created an innovative path to bring the Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses into the operating room to perform knee replacement surgeries and continues to make progress in the operating theater for a variety of uses. We look forward to supporting them in their worldwide distribution of this innovative AR solution,” said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix.
