Living labs: Lapis for minimally-invasive abdominal surgery
“Living lab” refers to a new approach to research and innovation where end users play an active role in developing and testing new solutions.
Masmec Biomed is carrying out a living lab project named Lapis with San Pio Hospital, end user of the device that has been developed, and ISBEM, scientific partner.
The aim is creating a navigation system for minimally-invasive surgery, for the hepatic area in particular, based on advanced techniques of image processing and virtual reality.
Lapis project is co-financed by Regione Puglia.
