Contributor Hajian, M. (mentor) Albayrak, A.

The controls to operate this Imaging System are placed on a trolley (pedestal). This pedestal is connected to the wall with the power and communication cables. This trolley causes many practical and ergonomical problems. The assignment was to ‘Analyse the use of the pedestal in a Hybrid Operating Room and develop a new solution to operate this Imaging System in a Hybrid Operating Room of 2020. The ambition of the project was: "Offer the professionals in the Hybrid OR of 2020 a solution which allows to operate the Philips Imaging System on a natural and intuitive way.” The proposed concept is a multi- touch wireless tablet in combination with gesture control. The surgeon can use the gestures to position and rotate the C-arm & Table. These gestures let the user operate the system without looking at/ or touching any controls. A camera in the surgical light will capture the gestures. The tablet can be used to change settings, skip through images, etc. Since it is wireless it can easily be attached to the table. The charger at the wall can charge two tablets. The circulating nurses can use the tablet that is being charged for calling assistance, inventory management, etc. A computer program was build that shows 3D models of the C-arm and table. A 3D camera captures the gestures that can control the movements of the models on screen.
