The Surgility Program
The Surgility program tackles technology challenges and innovation opportunities across UHN operating rooms. Working closely with clinical teams and stakeholders (surgeons, nurses, Medical Engineering, Digital, and vendors), the Techna engineering team helps mitigate recurrent problems, communicate new technology opportunities, and help realize new ideas from users through prototyping, testing, and implementation.
Example projects include hand gesture and voice control for the operating room, a combination of eye-tracking with endoscopy, and post-processing workflows with 3D printing and augmented reality.
