Summary:
This Italian innovative start-up, focused on virtual and augmented reality for medical practice and surgery, is interested in collaborating with universities (medicine faculties), industries and distributors for neurosurgery, in order to improve the medical care sector.

Description:
This start-up was established in Northern Italy in 2017, with the main purpose to create value for industrial manufacturers developing virtual reality experiences.
Thanks to a long-lasting experience in IT, mobile development and an innovative vision, this company started its activity in the field of virtual reality, signing many partnerships with local SMEs focused on food -Y- beverage machines manufacturing, but also with big corporations such as Siemens Italy.
This start-up has created a real innovative suite in virtual and augmented reality addressed to surgeons, in two main areas: brain surgery and spine surgery.
Smart glasses become an information hub during the surgery:
· Radiography
· CT Scan
· Computed tomography angiography
· Volume render of tissues
The Smart glasses are available exactly when needed, keeping the operating field sterile. The system can be navigated using sterile gloves in the air, without touching non-sterile items. The distinctive factors deriving from the use of these technologies facilitate the work of surgeons, who are able to directly display the tissues position in their visual field, and also in the pre-operation planning. Other therapeutic applications (e.g. cardio surgery, orthopedics, dental...) can be evaluated according to business opportunity.
This start-up has a patent for using holographic display during surgery. It is currently pending in Europe and the Middle East.
The main values provided from the virtual reality applied to industry are:
- 3D reviews optimization;
- Saving on manufacturing costs and time consuming activities: customers can visit the plant before the installation, checking ergonomics, compliance, and other useful information;
- Process training activity: clear improvement of the efficiency and training of employees regarding complex procedures.
From 2018, this company has been applying virtual reality and augmented reality to the medical sector, creating and developing three partnerships with relevant medical faculties of universities in Italy and Saudi Arabia. This start-up has performed the first neurosurgery in Turin (Clinica Fornaca) under the supervision of a head physician of Turin´s "Città della Salute" and has planned the clinical trial.
The main revolutionary innovations implemented are:
- A complete training in virtual reality for medical thoracoscopy, addressed to the physicians following the specific course. The apprentices can practice the medical protocol on a virtual patient, instead of a real one (not allowed in the real world).
- An ongoing project in neurosurgery, developed in cooperation with two Universities (Turin and Kaust) and a private company. This company has helped the surgeon to interpolate several data in the operating room, visualizing them in real time on a screen in augmented reality.
- This company is involved in a project for a pharmaceutical company, helping the researchers to conduct the observation of rats under specific treatments. This observation is conducted through a computer vision system written by this start-up.
This Italian company is searching for research cooperation agreements with universities (in particular medicine faculties) to propose its services of virtual reality and augmented reality, computer vision and training in virtual reality or augmented reality in surgery and in the healthcare sector. Commercial agreements with technical assistance are sought with industries and distributors for neurosurgery, to adapt/develop their holosurgery services to new applications or sectors, giving start to collaboration projects.
This start-up is interested in establishing a long-term mutual co-operation in the markets of the Russian Federation, Germany, Turkey, United Kingdom and France.
Advantages and Innovations:
This start-up develops innovative solutions in the field of virtual reality and augmented reality, with the aim to innovate the medical care sector, by increasing the accuracy during surgeries, reducing medical errors and giving doctors and patients a better understanding of health checks.
Thanks to the research carried out by this start-up, it has been shown that both virtual and augmented reality can be an efficient aid for the healthcare professions: safe training, assistance and data collection in the operating room.
In these years, this start-up has particularly specialized in training, offering a unique learning process to students and practitioners.
Specifically, virtual reality can be used to support students training on procedures before direct contact with patients, and to support the surgery team in simulating scenarios that are uncommon in the daily activity.
Integrated together, virtual and augmented reality enable to achieve a dual purpose: to work alongside the surgeon by acquiring data in real time during the operation, and to train professionals during their specialization in complex disciplines such as neurosurgery.
These excellent, immersive experiences enable to reduce anxiety, pain, and also to support professionals in giving emotional support to patients.
The augmented reality with smart glasses can be used to support surgeons during the pre-operation planning and to better understand the 3D positioning of tissues (cancerous and normal).
The advantage of using these technologies is the possibility to obtain more additional information in front of the surgeon´s eyes, aligned with the real information of the operating field, thus ensuring pinpoint accuracy and the solution of potential problems during surgery.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
This Italian company is searching for research cooperation agreements with universities (in particular medicine faculties) to propose its customized services of virtual reality and augmented reality, computer vision and training in virtual reality or augmented reality in surgery and in the healthcare sector.
Commercial agreements with technical assistance are sought with industries and distributors for neurosurgery, to adapt/develop their holosurgery services to new applications or sectors, giving start to collaborative projects.
This Italian start-up team will provide the knowhow, the necessary services and the technologies to implement the solutions in the partners´ own markets.
This start-up is interested in establishing a long-term mutual co-operation in the Russian Federation, Germany, Turkey, United Kingdom and France markets, countries with mature neurosurgery sectors.
A particularly interesting service for Muslim countries is the virtual reality as a perfect alternative to the cadaver lab, a medical practice forbidden in those countries for religious reasons.
