Step by Step process

How Kinomatic Works

Step 1

Consultation with your surgeon

During your consultation your surgeon will determine if you’re a candidate for Kinomatic VR.

Step 2

CT scan

Quick 10 minute CT scan of your affected body part. The radiology facility will send the CT scan to our team of engineers.

Step 3

VR modeling

Our team of engineers will develop an exact 3D replica of your joint. After reviewing your model your surgeon will start planning out your surgery.

Step 4

Custom Surgical Plan

Our engineers will develop a custom surgical template and detailed surgical plan based on your anatomy, the size of your bone, the alignment of your joint, the quality of your ligaments and tendons, and your pathology (how you wore out the joint). Next, we recreate your natural biomechanical alignment, and correct for any malalignment.

Step 5


The day of surgery your surgeon will review your model and reference the surgical plan in the operating room. Most cases can be done out-patient, and you can go home just a couple of hours after surgery.

Step 6

Do what you want.

Enjoy the benefits of receiving a surgery designed specifically for your own body; results so natural, you'll be ready to jump back into all of your favorite activites.

A New View

Why VR?

In traditional surgery, the practitioner can see only a fraction of the problem at one time. It’s like having a partial view of the tip of an iceberg, with no view at all of what’s underneath the surface. Kinomatic VR solves this problem entirely by giving your surgeon the means to view the joint from every angle, up close and in full.

How VR Works

The process begins with imaging. A custom CT scan gives an incredibly detailed, digital representation of the affected area. This digital recreation accounts for every physical detail nuance, from ligaments to every groove and ridge of bone. This visual data is rendered into a 3D file that is viewed through a portable headset, which allows for an immersive and reactive viewing experience. Using a wireless handset, the user can manipulate and rotate the image of the joint to study it from every angle.

How VR Helps Your Surgeon

Kinomatic VR helps surgeons plan better, faster, and less invasive procedures by eliminating much of the guesswork. Through virtual reality based on images of your actual hip, knee, shoulder, or spine, your surgeon can have a perfect view of the issue from any angle they need. There is no more guesswork. Before a single incision is made, your surgeon knows exactly where the problem lies and–perhaps just as important–where it doesn’t. This means no unnecessary removal of material, faster operating times, and more satisfied patients.
