Invuity Sees A Clear Path In Minimally Invasive Surgery
Invuity Inc. is bringing a bright new look to the surgical field with a new type of illumination that is giving surgeons the opportunity to see inside the human body better than ever before. The company’s Eigr waveguide system directs standard light through a maze of advanced optical polymer structures that reflect and direct the light so it shines uniformly across – as one surgeon describes it – a “deep, dark incision.” Surgeons say the additional light enables them to do surgeries more quickly and effectively, and Invuity says someday its light might be capable of doing much, much more.
