Summary

Summary: 
A Spanish healthcare research institute has developed a system for endoscopic spatial orientation that can be used in endoscopic surgery.Its main characteristic is the configuration through an inertial sensor and a computer system, to control the spatial position. The institute would like to talk to companies interested in commercializing this system or developing it under a license agreement or research agreement.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
The main competitive advantages of the system are: - Spatial perception improvement: the surgeon has information of the turn that the endoscope is doing, being able to correct in real time the deviation produced. - It allows to assess the surgeon’s skills and helps in the surgeon’s training. - The system alerts of unwanted turns.
