Founded in 2014, Augmedics seeks to improve healthcare by developing cutting edge technologies that will revolutionize surgical treatment. The company’s first product, xvision-spine (XVS) system, is an augmented reality surgical navigation system designed to allow surgeons to see and navigate inside a patient’s body during complex procedures. The XVS system, with XVS Software, has the intended use to precisely locate anatomical structures in either open or percutaneous neurosurgical and orthopedic procedures. Their use is indicated for any medical condition in which the use of stereotactic surgery may be appropriate, and where reference to a rigid anatomical structure, such as the spine or pelvis, can be identified relative to images of the anatomy. This can include spinal implant procedures such as pedicle screw placement, Iliosacral screw placement or interbody device placement.
Augmedics is funded by various investors, led by AO-Invest, an investment arm of the AO-Foundation, and has received numerous honors, including Technion’s BizTEC 2014, MedTech Innovator 2016, and MEDinISRAEL 2017. It was a finalist at TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco 2017 Startup Battlefield and recognized as a leading HealthTech Innovator in the 2017 Global Digital Health 100 by the Journal of mHealth.
