Ruthless Spine's RJB system is poised to transform the way spinal surgeons approach surgical navigation. Traditional techniques often require significant investments in capital, time, and manpower, making them cumbersome and challenging for many medical professionals. However, with the RJB system, these burdens are a thing of the past.

Simplicity and Efficiency

One of the standout features of the RJB system is its simplicity and efficiency. The RJB module is a small, Bluetooth-connected device that seamlessly attaches to any commonly used spinal instrument handle, specifically milled to accept the RJB shape. This streamlined design ensures that the system can be easily integrated into existing surgical workflows without the need for expensive, bulky, and complex custom machinery.

Accurate Visualization for Confident Surgery

The RJB system offers surgeons a precise and real-time visualization of the axial and sagittal trajectory of the instrument shaft directly on their Android or iOS tablet screen. This visualization allows for accurate placement of pedicle screws, aligned with pre-operatively templated orientation. Gone are the days of time-consuming registration and calibration processes, as the RJB system achieves seamless integration with just a 5-second or less pairing via Bluetooth.

To help visualize and communicate the groundbreaking capabilities of the RJB Spinal Navigation Device, Ruthless Spine joined forces with Ghost Medical, an esteemed animation and VR studio. Ghost Medical took on the task of creating immersive 3D animations that showcase the RJB system in action.

With their expertise in medical visualization, Ghost Medical brought the RJB to life through captivating animations, illustrating how the device seamlessly integrates with surgical instruments and the intuitive tablet interface. The animations not only demonstrate the precision of the RJB system but also highlight its unique ability to maintain registration even when the line of sight is obstructed, providing continuous and reliable measurements throughout the surgery.

Embracing a Promising Future

The collaboration between Ruthless Spine and Ghost Medical has resulted in an outstanding visual representation of the RJB Spinal Navigation Device. Surgeons, medical professionals, and patients alike can now better understand the innovative technology that promises to transform spine surgery.


The FDA approval of Ruthless Spine's RJB Spinal Navigation Device marks a significant milestone in the field of spine surgery. This game-changing innovation, brought to life through the collaborative efforts of Ruthless Spine and Ghost Medical, promises to bring newfound simplicity, efficiency, and accuracy to surgical navigation, benefiting both surgeons and patients alike. With the RJB system, spinal surgeons can confidently perform procedures, maintain their surgical flow, and focus on letting their talent shine, ultimately ushering in a brighter future for the spinal navigation industry.
