BOSTON, MA, JANUARY 9, 2022
OnPoint Surgical is revolutionizing spinal procedures with an Augmented Reality (AR) platform technology that superimposes virtual surgical guides and virtual spinal implants onto the surgeon’s visual field using see-through optical head-mounted displays. Surgeons are extremely excited about the technology, since it is highly intuitive and
easy to use, offering greatly improved hand-eye coordination. These benefits are augmented by impressive accuracy paired with a potential reduction in radiation exposure for patients and surgeons. The OnPoint technology is open platform and compatible with the implants of all major manufacturers; it requires no change in surgical technique or
The OnPoint AR technology is a cost-effective alternative to current robotic systems and is also an enabler for the next generation of robots, using optics instead of or in conjunction with haptics. The OnPoint AR platform technology is applicable to hospitals as well as ambulatory surgery centers.
“OnPoint offers an attractive financial profile using its rapidly accretive technology with high gross margin. It is a modular platform technology programmed for brisk expansion, since it enables AR guidance for both free-hand and robotic procedures. Our platform technology is at the nexus of free-hand and robotic surgery and it is backed by an
equally impressive IP portfolio of granted U.S. and international patents,” says Philipp Lang, CEO and Chairman.
