Raising the bar for orthopedic imaging.
Currently, orthopedic calibration devices are only 64% accurate at measuring a patient’s anatomy for pre-surgical planning. Plus, these devices often rely on patients to build an accurate picture of joint placement.
While working in the medical field, Autumn Henderson realized there should be an easier, more accurate way of surgical imaging that doesn’t require assistance from the patient in order to be successful. After all, the focus should be on the patient’s recovery and well-being; not their ability to help with surgical planning.
In May 2020, Autumn started developing the only surgical planning tool that is designed with repurposed material, as well as the only imaging tool that can be used in a CT scan to build 3D bone models. She hopes her design will remove the limitations of current orthopedic measuring tools, and create one that can work more efficiently for many healthcare professionals, as well as the patient.
For Autumn, it’s imperative that her business, Dynamite Imaging Solutions, is built on a solid foundation of research. Although she has made a lot of progress, she recognizes that she is very early in the development process and still has work to do.
The Dynamite Imaging Solutions team is in the process of building a prototype and pitching the device to Cameron Hospital’s lead orthopedic surgeon and hospital administrator in hopes that they will be the first hospital to test the prototype.
Near-term, Autumn hopes to create more prototypes that can be used in hospitals all over the country. Eventually, she hopes to create tools that will be used in every imaging room across the country, set a new standard for imaging tools, and raise the bar to challenge the way these x-rays have done for so many years.
