Augmedics is a pioneering company in the field of augmented reality (AR) surgical image guidance solutions. The company was founded with the mission to improve healthcare by developing cutting-edge technologies that will revolutionize surgical treatment. Its headquarters are located in Chicago, Illinois.
The company’s flagship product is the xvision Spine System, a groundbreaking advancement that revolutionizes surgery. This system is a head-mounted display that uses augmented reality to see the patient’s spine through skin and tissue while accurately determining the position of surgical tools in real-time. It also includes integrated lights for illuminating the focus area.
The xvision Spine System aligns the hands and eyes of the surgeon, eliminating the need to avert their eyes to an ancillary screen. The technology provides “tip of the spear” visualization, breaking down the wall between traditional navigation and the patient. It allows surgeons to accurately guide instruments and implants intraoperatively, in real time, while looking directly at the patient, as if they had “x-ray vision”.
