Building surgical navigation that is

Making surgical navigation immersive

We are revolutionizing how surgeons visualize anatomy by building headset-free technology to build a projective, mixed reality clinical environment.

We make subdermal anatomy, entry points for surgical instruments, incision guidelines, and real-time annotations easy to see by displaying directly on the patient’s skin.

Making surgical navigation easy to use

We are leveraging advances in computer vision and sensing to allow care teams to set up within seconds the entire surgical navigation system––without any invasive markers.

Our goal? Making surgical navigation as easy as turning on a surgical lamp.

Making surgical navigation accessible

We believe in democratizing access to quality surgical care. Our surgical navigation platform is portable and scalable to all types of healthcare facilities across the world––from rural, ambulatory surgical centers to large, academic hospitals.

We make this possible by combining advances in software and computer vision with commercial, off-the-shelf sensors and optics.
