Abstract [en]

This project dealt with Computer Aided Orthopedic Surgery (CAOS) and it was carried out for theUEgroup, San Jose (USA) between February 2006 and June 2006. The aim of this project has been to develop designs that provide a direction-setting vision for the next generation of orthopedic surgical devices focusing on providing visualization and feedback to surgeons. In the past growth in this market have mainly been the result of copying of the present user interfaces by competitors and research of the current generation of devices has suggested that there is a need for the devices and user interfaces to evolve into a new highly portable, highly usable, form factor. There had also appeared to be social, technological and practical reasons for why the adoption of COAS had lagged behind its value in the operating rooms. The next generation designs to be developed must therefore cater to the surgeons work environment and process in new ways to reduce the amount of inconvenience to the surgeon and surgical staff. Systematic problem solving is the methodology used in this thesis including: information gathering, problem determination, problem clarification, idea generation, Idea assessment and final design. It is a widely known methodology and it is a good help in product development to find good solutions to the problem. Through research, interviews with orthopedic surgeons and observations of surgeries a lot of important information was gathered and translated into requirements. From this a range of ideas were then generated. These ideas were evaluated and further developed into a final result. The final result of this thesis consists of two parts: a product design and an onscreen design. They can be used as two individual solutions as well as one solution combining the two.
