Medical Scanning Device

Problem Statement:

Surgeons and other doctors in operating theatres usually have to do an instrument check before and after every surgery. These instruments number up hundreds sometimes and it takes quite a while to go through all of them one by one especially when the life of a patient is at stake.

Objectives and Goals:

- Design an application that will shorten the check-in and check-out time - Take into consideration human factors errors and use the best possible solution at a glance.

1. Adoption: Resistance to change from staff used to old ways 2. Technical Challenges: There may be issues with image recognition, data processing, and integration with existing hospital systems. 3. Training and Support: Surgeons and other medical staff will need to be trained on how to use the app and be provided with ongoing support. 4. Reliability and uptime: The app must be reliable and have a high uptime rate to minimize disruptions to surgeries and other medical procedures.

For the purpose of the research, 30 surgeons and their assistants filled a survey and these are the results: Observations 90% Believe that it could improve safety and efficacy of surgeries. 65% Agree that it would reduce risk of surgical errors. 75% Are willing to incorporate it into their workflow. 55% Agree that the app would make their job more enjoyable. 50% Of assistants said that the app could help them better manage the tools and equipment used.


1 Efficiency: They want it to identify any potential issues before and after surgery, thereby shortening the check-in and check-out time. 2. Reliability: They need a tool that is reliable and has a high uptime rate to minimize disruptions to surgeries and other medical procedures. 3. Safety: They need a tool that can improve the safety of surgeries by ensuring that all tools are properly sterilized and available when needed.

Introducing OrtoLligence to operating rooms taught us a lot. First, even if a tool is good, people might not want to use it right away. So, teaching them and showing them its good parts is key. Usability, or making the tool easy and simple to use, is very important. If it's confusing, people won’t like it. But if it’s clear and easy, they will use it more. We also learned that having a backup plan is needed in case something goes wrong. Listening to the users and their feedback helps make the tool better over time. It’s also important that this new tool works well with the old systems in the hospital. And lastly, while the tool is helpful, we should never forget the value of human touch and judgment. The tool should help the doctors, not replace them. Plus, a bonus: using the tool can save time and money by keeping track of costly equipment.
