M3i supports EIZO in the development of an OR information system for the centralization of essential surgical procedures, through the agile involvement of clinical experts. We are particularly pleased with the evaluation of James Berge, Product Manager at EIZO, of our service as the “key to success”.
Together with Ernst & Young, one of the leading audit firms, M3i presents this year’s “Pulse of the Industry” event. Leading experts from the field of medical technology will give presentations on topics relevant to medtech companies today.
When & where:

Hörsaal der Poliklinik, Pettenkoferstr. 8a, 80336 Munich, Germany
We are excited to announce that VibroSuite, one of our recent research projects, has been accepted as a contribution at this year’s CAOS International Conference in Beijing. Nima Befrui of LMU München is speaking on Thursday, June 7th at 08:33 to present our work on “Detection and Grading of Knee Joint Cartilage Defect Using Multi-Class Classification in Vibroarthrography”.
An article about the project was also published earlier this month in a peer-reviewed journal (see here for the full article).
Brainlab, one of Germany’s leading experts in the field of surgical navigation, is now a partner in an industry-in-clinic research project. The goal is to develop a new, more precise and more user-friendly navigation tool for spine surgery.
In the second edition of our White Paper Series, we discuss why user feedback should be implemented in the product development process and how to do it in a way that is most effective.
M3i and its partners, Munich Innovation Labs and the Munich University Hospital are excited to announce the publication of their first co-authored article, “Vibroarthrography for early detection of knee osteoarthritis using normalized frequency features” at Springer Nature (see here for a free, full length read-only version). The article discusses the findings from research project “ArthroScan”, conducted by researchers from M3i and the Munich University Hospital. In this EU-funded project, researchers sought to study the possibilities of vibroarthography, a non-invasive, non-radiative and very cost-effective technology using sound waves for early-stage detection of damage in knee joints. Munich Innovation Labs contributed its expertise in machine learning to the project, to develop a technology based on machine learning and a linear support vector machine, which proved to reach a classification specificity of approximately 0.8 at a sensitivity of 0.75. This performance is comparable to existing diagnostic tools, thus qualifying machine-learning- supported vibroarthography as an additional diagnostic tool.
M3i has officially been awarded as the winner of the German Federal Government’s Industry-in-Clinic National Initiative in 2016.
