OrthoView LLC, providers of digital planning solutions for orthopaedics, launched the latest version of their software at AAOS 2010. OrthoView Version 6 includes SmartHip automatic templating, an innovation that enables the user to plan a total hip procedure in less than 60 seconds.

SmartHip is one of the latest developments from OrthoView, available with the newest Version 6 release of the software.

SmartHip enables the surgeon to template a total hip in less than 60 seconds by automatically placing the prosthesis stem template within the femur in the on-screen image. Said William Peterson, Vice President of Sales for North America. It also has a one-click reduction feature that provides the surgeon with an instant view of the post-operative position of the femur for a streamlined on-screen templating process. SmartHip is an integrated feature of OrthoView 6.
