The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved an iPad app designed to help orthopedic surgeons conduct pre-operative planning of total hip replacement surgery.

Developed by Voyant Health Ltd., TraumaCad Mobile allows surgeons to securely import medical images—directly from hospital imaging systems or from secured cloud storage—so they can use these digital images to perform measurements, fix prostheses, simulate osteotomies, and visualize fracture reductions. Considered a class II medical device in the U.S., the app overlays prosthesis templates on radiological images and includes tools for performing measurements on the image and for positioning the template.

The app also automatically aligns implants and assembles components to calculate leg length discrepancy and offset. Based on HTML 5 technology, TraumaCad Mobile is available as an iPad app or via web browser on a PC or Mac, but is not for use on mobile phones.

TraumaCad Mobile can be integrated with existing Picture Archiving and Communication Systems with enterprise grade security and administrative management, or can be used as a stand-alone solution.
