Explorer Surgical, one of several companies working to established remote connections between surgeons and advisors located outside the operating room, introduced a suite of audio/video functionality that it says will established “unprecedented” levels of communications.
The Chicago-based startup says its platform will include augmented reality. According to a release, the HIPAA-compliant system will allow proxies, sales reps and surgeons to use “telestration” to better communicate their guidance. Surgeons and sales reps will be able to zoom in and out on objects, procedural areas and other areas requiring better visibility. It will also allow screen sharing.
