Wireless smart surgical instrumentation for spinal interventions.
A novel computer-assisted instrument with a shape similar to existing spinal spreaders was developed with the objective to characterize the biomechanical parameters of the spinal segment.

A novel computer-assisted instrument with a shape similar to existing spinal spreaders was developed. Investigation of the viscoelastic properties as well as the dynamic spinal stiffness was performed in the frame of a clinical study. Measurements were performed intra-operatively on the operated spinal segment.
The objective of the current study is to further characterize the in vivo biomechanical properties of the human lumbar spinal segment (HLSS) by using a newly developed computer-assisted spinal instrument.
