The Australian Institute of Robotic Orthopaedics
The team at AIRO are focused on making tomorrow’s surgical techniques a reality today. Our mission is not about simply creating a new osteotomy tool, or new orthopaedic robot, we’ve developed the means to restore an individual’s pre-disease or injury joint function.
Limitations of current osteotomy tools.
Orthopaedics is primed for change
We are at a pivotal moment in orthopaedics. Demand for joint replacement surgery, particularly knee and hip replacements, is growing dramatically around the world. Driving this rapid market expansion is an ageing global population, a rise in chronic diseases such as obesity and arthritis, and increasing instances of joint replacement procedures in younger active patients.
Patient expectations for post-operative recovery, with restored quality of life has never been higher. At the same time, rapid developments in artificial intelligence, 3D digital sensing, robotics and advanced manufacturing capabilities are poised to challenge the dominance of traditional orthopaedic practice. The global orthopaedic market is now primed for change.
