ManMoS Details

ManMoS (Mandibular Motion Tracking System), is the next step in mandibular motion analysis for use in orthognathic surgery.

ManMoS Clinical Significance:

  • Bones, teeth, bite angle, and jaw movement can all be monitored simultaneously, making ManMoS suitable for presurgical planning.
  • The virtual mandibular model can be evaluated easily and accurately; post-surgical treatment can also be planned by manipulating the virtual model.
  • After deciding the final jaw and tooth positions on the virtual model,  a jaw splint (for post-surgical recovery) can be constructed.
  • By checking the bone structure on the monitor, the risk of post-surgical injury/damage is reduced significantly.
  • Information can easily be shared between orthodontists and surgeons using this system, which would greatly increase the efficiency of the procedure.

For successful surgical simulation, a great amount of information must be gathered and shared by orthodontists and surgeons, and results are based on many trials. This kind of "prediction system" requires 2 things to work successfully:

 1)Pre-surgical simulation can be easily reviewed;

 2)Notes and procedural decisions can be incorporated into and reflected by the system.

ManMoS possesses both of these capabilities.

ManMoS Features:

Before surgery, the system can construct an accurate 3D model of the jaw which can be used for diagnosis.

The method of incision/bone extraction can be easily determined via the virtual model.

Cost effective- save time and money

  • Mandibular cast model.jpgExpensive cast models (pictured, right) are made obsolete by the equivalent virtual model, saving money and time.
(It costs ~200,000 yen and takes about 1 week to construct each skeletal model.)
  • Surgical simulation can be performed an infinite number of times on the virtual model, while a cast model cannot properly be used for simulation more than once or twice.
  • Conventional preoperative consultation and preparation (i.e. braces) can take up to 2-3 years.
However, ManMoS has allowed doctors to improve conventional practices and shorten this time to as little as 6 months!
  • A virtual cephalogram can be constructed using Dicom Data. Patients don't need to undergo unnecessary X-rays, and the machinery used to create a cephalogram- which costs roughly 6,000,000 yen- is not required.
  • A separate mandibular motion tracking system, which costs roughly 1,000,000 yen, is also made obsolete.

※ It should be noted that this system may be required to be registered and licensed for medical use, depending on local laws, ordinances, and restrictions.
