BOSTON, MA, September 5th, 2023
OnPoint, a group of privately held augmented reality (AR) technology companies pioneering AR guidance for multiple verticals including spine, neurosurgical, and orthopedic surgical procedures, including robotic procedures, today announced that it will participate in the 2023 Wells Fargo Healthcare Conference, which will take place from September 5 to 8, 2023, at the Encore Boston Harbor Hotel, Everett, MA. Philipp Lang, MD, Founder, Chairman and CEO, Grace Connelly, CFO, and Chris Tagatac, VP Corporate Development, will present the OnPoint AIm-AR technology platform on Wednesday, September 6, 2023.
OnPoint is revolutionizing spinal, neurosurgical and orthopedic surgical procedures with an Augmented Reality (AR) platform that superimposes virtual surgical guides and virtual implants onto the surgeon’s visual field using proprietary see-through optical head-mounted display technology. Surgeons are highly enthusiastic about the technology, since it is extremely intuitive and easy to use, offering greatly improved hand-eye coordination and intra-operative efficiency.
These benefits are enhanced by unprecedented accuracy, exceeding that of all major existing navigation, robotic and augmented reality systems between 2 – 5x, with the differences being statistically highly significant across all comparisons.
The OnPoint AIm-AR platform technology is a cost-effective and highly accurate 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, creating the opportunity to transplant the unparalleled accuracy of the OnPoint AIm-AR technology onto existing robotic systems.
The OnPoint AIm-AR platform technology is applicable to hospitals as well as ambulatory surgery centers (ASC’s). The OnPoint AIm-AR technology is open platform and compatible with the implants of all major manufacturers; it requires no change in surgical technique or surgeon practice.
“OnPoint offers an attractive financial profile for hospitals and ASC’s using its rapidly accretive, exceptionally accurate and cost-effective technology. It is a modular platform technology programmed for brisk expansion, since it is at the nexus of free-hand and robotic surgery. The technology is backed by an equally impressive IP portfolio of granted U.S. and international patents with a value exceeding $200 Million“, says Philipp Lang, CEO and Chairman.
