Surgeons and interventional radiologists are using more and more technology to help push the limits of medicine. However, a great divide exists in their operating rooms. While they don sterile gowns and gloves, adhering to aseptic technique in order to protect patients from infection, much of their equipment resides in the non-sterile part of the room. This means that many of the powerful tools that could improve intraoperative decision-making and patient outcomes are literally out of bounds.
GestSure Technologies is giving doctors back control of their operating rooms. A Toronto-based startup, we were the first to use infrared depth-sensing cameras in the operating room environment to create gestural, touchless interfaces. Our software, enabled by a new generation of 3D cameras, broke new ground as one of the original, most ingenious Microsoft Kinect “hacks”.
With extensive expertise in machine vision, human-machine interfaces, and surgical factors, we have created a robust system that integrates easily and flexibly into the OR workflow.
