BMBF-funded Project SmartOT

Project goals

In the Smart-OT ("Smart Operating Theatre") project, research is being conducted into how novel, so-called smart lighting and control concepts, which are to be interactively and holistically linked with each other, can ensure more quality, safety, ergonomics and efficiency in operating theatre processes. The aim is to reduce the workload of OR staff and ultimately increase patient safety. To achieve this, the demonstrators are tested in simulation operations in the most realistic environment possible.

For this purpose, the team at the University Department of Visceral Surgery, led by Prof. Dr. Dirk Weyhe, is setting up a laboratory specially designed for such research questions, in which operations can be simulated and workflows in the OR researched. In addition to the University Hospital, the Pius Hospital Oldenburg, as well as the companies Dr. Mach GmbH & Co KG (project leader), Qioptiq GmbH & Co KG and KIZMO GmbH are participating in the project. In addition, the University of Bremen is participating with the working groups for Digital Media and for Computer Graphics and Virtual Reality. The project runs until 30.9.2021 and is funded with 1.2 million euros by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

The contact person for the project on the part of the University Hospital is Dr. . Further information on this project can also be found here.
