UEL is so happy to share this exciting news from Radwave Technologies.
Radwave Technologies, Inc. has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I grant. This $256,000 grant will help them accelerate the development of their next-generation electromagnetic tracking system for surgical navigation, which features:
* Scalable tracking volume (as large as the patient’s entire body)
* Compatibility with intraoperative fluoro & CT-scan
* Real-time detection and correction of interference (no more inaccuracies in the presence of fluoro or robotic arms).
This award is another validation for all the work Radwave does to make this next-gen system the standard in the industry.
Needless to say everyone at Radwave is excited to partner with the NSF to deliver an accurate surgical navigation system for everyone in the MIS & robotic surgery field.
The NSF grant is titled “Modular and Reconfigurable Electromagnetic Navigation System for Surgical Interventions and Medical Robotics.”
This $256k grant will help accelerate Radwave’s development and sets them up for additional federal funding.
