SurgAR has joined hands with Medexprim to establish a three-year partnership with a top hospital in France. This partnership is to build dedicated AR software for laparoscopic surgery.
The University Hospital Centre of Clermont-Ferrand is one of the best-ranked hospitals in France. Surgical Augmented Reality (SurgAR) has developed a software suite that allows for virtual information superimposition to real time surgical view.
SurgAR intends to guide surgeons during operations, increasing precision.
It will try to reduce intervention times, complication rates, and hospitalizations.
Novarad’s OpenSight AR System in 2018 was given the go-ahead by the US FDA, which allowed doctors to view inside patients before an operation.
Medexprim and Surgical Augmented Reality stated that they intend to work with a European hospital network to deploy the technology at more than ten sites in the next three years.
SurgAR was founded by Adrien Bartoli, a computer sciences professor, and Nicolas Bourdel, a gynecological surgeon working at Clermont-Ferrand hospital.
Medexprim, an accelerator of hospital clinical research, was founded in 2015. Medexprim aggregates clinical and imaging data in compliance with regulations. They are also looking to expand into the US, South America, and Asia and get included in EU-funded research projects.
