Veterinarian, Rory Paton, has designed a state-of-the-art, retina resolution, cloud based multiplatform app. The Veterinary Preoperative Orthopaedic Planner (vPOP-pro), has been developed to revolutionise the way vets practice surgery and plan their orthopaedic operations. Through multiple devices including, mobile phones, laptops and computers, vets can share their results with colleagues and clients before going into theatre. Providing a Digital Imaging Communications in Medicine (DICOM) friendly solution for vets, the VPOP-pro includes implant templates and an extensive toolkit that allows vets to create and integrate custom measurements. It also aids to eliminate heavy workloads through allowing the surgeon to access and navigate the app to perform tasks in any location with internet.
“A state-of-the-art, retina resolution, cloud based multi platform app called vPOP-pro has been designed for orthopaedic surgeons.“
Rory Paton, a Veterinarian, stated: “I needed an accessible planning solution wherever I was. Patients’ problems and the ideas to fix them come to you at all times of the day and in different places, but I couldn’t find anything that suited my needs. I drew up the idea and commissioned the app for personal use. However, when my colleagues saw it, they asked where I got it from. When they discovered it was a personal commission, a small group of European College of Veterinary Surgeons specialists and CertAVP surgeons asked to invest in the product to bring it to market. We are passionate about providing a cost effective, portable and intuitive solution with effective customer support. All you need is your finger, internet access and your device. You can show your clients how you plan to fix their pets fracture and leave them with a picture of the solution, not the problem. Whether you are placing your first intramedullary pin or planning your two-thousandth total hip replacement, you can use this app to calibrate, plan and identify the exact implant you need and where to get it from right from your iPhone, iPad, Windows or Mac device.”
