Dutch startup i-Med Technology, which showcased an a 3D digital surgical head-mounted loupe at CES 2020, develops products based on user-centric and demand-driven innovations, according to company CEO Vincent Graham.
Startups need to constantly test and verify their technologies on-site, and i-Med has cooperated with hospitals to develop the loupe and these hospitals are expected to initially use the device, Graham noted.
Before operations, surgeons can integrate diagnostic information such as medical records, CT, MRI and blood tests into the loupe, said Graham.
During the operations, surgeons can see several separate displays of various information on the loupe to enable them to accurately decide on location, depth and width for surgery. There are pedals to allow surgeons to switch on and off LED lighting, adjust sizes, contrast and brightness of displayed images.
