The medical sector has always been a technology-driven field, dominating the interest of engineers, biologists and chemists in a complimentary symbiosis with clinicians. Joining these translational discliplines, in the socio-economic quest towards effectively treating a continuously aging population, has led to the sophistication of both medical devices and implants. As surgical practice continues to evolve, patient-specific implementation is gaining notable importance, transforming Computer Assisted Surgery (CAS) into one of the highest paced segments of the international healthcare system. CAS facilitates the conversion of preoperative images and other information into 3D models of individual patients, providing clinicians with haptic support during preparation of complex and/or delicate surgical procedures.
