Demonstration of the DHS prototype

Amr presented the DHS prototype, from the ”Mastering DHS” project {Dynamic Hip Screw surgery}, to the participants of the “Evolutoin of Knee Replacement Surgery” Meeting, hold earlier in June, within the University of Lincoln.

This project looks at computer-based virtual training for the junior surgeon, for improving the hands-eye-brain coordination for the DHS surgery, with benefits to patients, trainees, and the NHS.

Amr was invited by Prof. Maqsood, Consultant Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgeon.

Masterig DHS

Mastering DHS is an initial prototype for

virtual training of Junior surgeons for the DHS (Dynamic Hip Screw) surgery.


It aims at improving the Hand-eyes-Brain coordination by providing a computerised training system, constructed from affordable Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COT) componenets.

This work is in collaboration with Prof. Maqsood, Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic surgeon in the Lincoln Hospital.
