Company Summary

Laparoscopic surgery accounts for 4.4 million procedures annually (U.S.). Over 50% of patient injuries and deaths during these cases happen in the first 2 minutes, during the "access" phase. Access requires the insertion of sharp instruments into the patient's abdominal cavity, without the benefit of proper guidance. Our company has created a low-cost technology platform that provides reliable instrument guidance for surgeons.
