Sharktank past winners

AHF2023 Shark Tank Winner

Douglas Fairbanks beat the sharks at the #AHF2023 Ortho Sharktank.

He impressed with Advanced Scanners [now VISIE] and the platform’s potential to enable robotic, AR/VR, and Surgical Navigation Systems.

The current Advanced Scanners device replaces the trace of hundreds of arduously collected points with a scan that gathers ~1,000,000 points in a fraction of a second.

Additionally, the device can be used to check calibration at any point in the case AND re-register the anatomy when needed.

AHF2022 Shark Tank Winner

Kristoff Corten beat the #AHF2022 SharkTank and earned some serious bragging rights with an entertaining presentation that clearly highlighted the benefits of the MedEnvision Esy Solution

THIS IS A PLACEHOLDER for later on 2024
