Navbit Sprint System has excellent accuracy and precision

Back to

Congratulations to the author’s Jobe Shatrov, Daniel Marsden-Jones, Matt Lyons, and Bill Walter on the publication of their NavbitĀ®Sprint accuracy study1 in the HSS Journal this month.

In this study, the accuracy of the entire Navbit Sprint system (device and process) was assessed during simulated surgical workflows, performed by surgeons on cadavers. For both supine and lateral patient positions, excellent accuracy was achieved relative to the post-operative CT scan measurements.

The study found that the Navbit Sprint system registration process enabled accurate measurements and that the total error in the end-to-end process for the Navbit Sprint System is low. These results suggest that the Navbit Sprint System has excellent accuracy and precision.
