BOSTON, MA, March 19, 2022
OnPoint Surgical, Inc., a privately held augmented reality (AR) technology company pioneering AR guidance for multiple spine, neurosurgical, and robotic procedures, today announced that it will participate in the 2022 Canaccord Genuity Musculoskeletal Conference, which will take place on March 22nd, 2022, immediately preceding the 2022 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons in Chicago, IL. Philipp Lang, MD, Founder, Chairman and CEO, will present the OnPoint Surgical technology platform that day at 2.00 pm CT.
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 highly enthusiastic about the technology, since it is extremely 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 surgeon practice.
The OnPoint AR technology is a cost-effective alternative to current robotic systems and is also an enabler for the next generation of robots, i.e. smart 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, cost effective technology. 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.
