SMART SENSING MEDICAL DEVICES
Our mission is to improve patient care through enhanced situational awareness. We are developing a new category of instruments that sense the biophysical profile of subject tissues at key decision points. Our instruments inform providers with data that is not currently accessible, yet crucial in guiding patient-specific workflow.
