Abstract: The modern requirements of personalized medicine, the need of interdisciplinary approaches in developing medical devices and also the necessity to enhance communication between doctors and engineers impose the development of new e-health applications which can support different medical specialities or respond to patient individual needs. This is the context which helped determine current research to focus on the development of an intelligent online platform dedicated to design and manufacturing of patient-specific guides for orthopaedic surgery. The platform supports surgeon-engineer collaboration and information sharing, offering online tools that allow inferring surgeon intents by using structured questionnaires adapted to the surgical intervention types and anatomical zones, and a collaborative 3D viewer for medical models and guides. Databases with medical and technical information, as well as with medical cases are implemented in the platform, being used for contextual information display and for information sharing and retrieval.
Keywords: web-based medical platform, collaborative design development, additive manufacturing, surgical guides.
