Surgical AR Company Augmedics Receives FDA Clearance
The company’s headset projects X ray-like 3D visualization of the patient in real-time, allowing surgeons to see through the patient's skin, muscle tissue, and bone
The headset is intended for use in spinal and pelvic surgeries.
Clinical trials of the headset in minimally invasive spine surgeries have been underway in Israel since the summer of 2018, Augmedics’ CEO Nissan Elimelech said in an interview with Calcalist earlier this year.
