ST. LOUIS – A panel of cardiologists, engineers, and other experts have given SentiAR, Inc.’s augmented reality (AR) platform an exceptional peer review, leading the National Institutes for Health (NIH) to award SentiAR a prestigious research grant to advance its work to revolutionize the operating room with AR software designed to improve visualization in cardiac surgeries and other interventional procedures.
SentiAR will receive $2.2 million of non-dilutive milestone installments to advance its platform. Using the SentiAR technology, through the Microsoft head-up display, physicians can view, measure, and manipulate real-time holographic images of the patient’s heart during medical procedures – while still being able to clearly see the operating room environment – giving physicians complete, real-time, visual control of both the virtual and real worlds, aimed at reducing operating time and radiation exposure to clinicians, and potentially improving outcomes for patients. In-human engineering testing began in Summer, 2017.
