The EIC is Europe’s flagship program to identify, develop and scale breakthrough technologies and game changing innovations. The EIC Accelerator aims to support start-ups and spinout companies in further development and scale up. Augmedit was among 75 companies selected, located across 21 countries, which will together receive €396.7 million of funding for breakthrough innovations based on assessment criteria of excellence, scale-up potential, and level of risk. 20% of the companies have female CEO’s.
Augmedit introduces a complete and intuitive Augmented Reality workflow for clinical practice with its LumiNE light and LumiNE Elite applications. LumiNE light is CE certified software that automatically generates holograms out of medical imaging for surgical preparation and patient education. The LumiNE Elite software projects these holograms on the patient in the operation room with a surgical plan to guide the surgeon. This holographic experience improves the insight of surgeons, making surgery safer and driving massive cost savings for medical institutions.
The EIC funding will be used to finalize LumiNe Elite developments and CE certify this software. It will also be used to accelerate the sales of the current LumiNe light software for surgical preparation and patient education.
Claartje Ypma, CEO / Co-founder: “We are very proud to have been selected for this grant. We are grateful to the EIC for its support to bring our company into the next phase with such a crucial technology for the future of surgery. We look forward to the benefits that being an EIC community member will bring.”
Tristan van Doormaal, CMO / Co-founder: “ We are very excited to receive this grant. This will further push our game changing innovations in Augmented Reality to reduce preventable medical errors”
Tom Mensink, CTO / Co-founder: “With the EIC funding we can further extend our great team to help realize exciting improvements for surgeons, 3D Labs and patients."
