  • Our vision for mixed reality Sensational

    Get a deeper sense of your patients by changing the way you interact with their digital models.

  • Our vision of interaction

    When you assess a patient, you examine them from all sides.
    You walk around and
    interact with them.
    What if you could do the same with their digital images?
  • Our vision of interaction

    Brainlab Mixed Reality
    lets you interact
    with patient data
    as you would with patients.

Mixed Reality Viewer1

With a glance, your room is digitized for spatial computing and images are transported from Elements Viewer software on screen into the room in front of you with the help of Magic Leap spatial computing platform.

How it works together

Stepping into the world of mixed reality involves the seamless cooperation of seriously powerful technology. Follow the flow of data and discover each of the interconnected components.

This software is the foundation on which the mixed reality experience is built. From here, a click of the Magic Leap icon and a glance at a QR code transports the content from Viewer into mixed reality.

The evolution of interaction

The way medical practitioners have interacted with patient data has evolved over time. Explore the digital interaction devices that carved a path for mixed reality.

  • Keyboards – 1960’s
  • Mouse control – 1980’s
  • Touch interfaces – 1990’s
  • Spatial computing – Today
  • Keyboards

    Derived from the typewriter, keyboards were the first devices for users to input and interact with data on early computers.

  • Mouse control

    Coming into common use in the 80s, the mouse allowed users to intuitively point and click, increasing speed of interaction.

  • Touch interfaces

    Zoom, pan, scroll, rotate—touch control made working with information even more intuitive and interactive.

  • Spatial computing

    Today, data has evolved out of the limitations of the screen to allow for interacting with and viewing data anywhere.

Enhancing your interaction

Make mixed your reality. Discover where we see mixed reality adding a new dimension for better insights.

  • Patient consultation
  • Teaching & training
  • Operating room
  • Patient consultation

    Enable patients to better understand their diagnosis and the surgical approach by showing them their own anatomy and the procedural plan in 3D. Facilitate shared decision-making with patients and family members in mixed reality.

  • Teaching & training

    Mixed reality is the future of medical education. Students can learn about and discuss anatomy, pathology and treatment approaches in hyperrealistic 3D from the safety of their classroom.

  • Operating room

    In the future, with a completely integrated smart operating room, you’ll be able to track your instruments in mixed reality and have all the data you need before your eyes.

Interacting with the Digital Patient Model

Working with a “digital twin” of your patients gives you more complete insights into their real anatomy. The uniquely complete Digital Patient Model forms the basis of Brainlab Elements treatment planning software.
