TT Electronics in the UK has partnered with Radwave Technologies to develop and manufacture an accurate, reliable, and customisable electromagnetic (EM) tracking platform for surgical navigation.
The complete navigation system can be customised to accurately track a broad spectrum of minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic devices during surgical procedures with no clear line of sight.
The modular Radwave electromagnetic tracking platform has been designed specifically for integration into medical devices with rapid customisation to meet specifications and high accuracy through a fast-sampling rate.
The thin and lightweight field-generating antenna is translucent during fluoroscopy and can be easily customised to accommodate different sensing volumes. The platform also features a fully encrypted API that is easy to integrate and comes with an open-source SDK.
TT Electronics will support Radwave’s platform by providing complete manufacturing capabilities spanning a range of critical sensor technologies. TT’s sensor technologies enable the platform to deliver the highest degree of accuracy and precision, even in challenging settings where other EM systems have been limited by interference or sensing volume constraints.
“TT has been supporting medical and life science customers around the world for more than a decade, and partnerships with medical innovators like Radwave are critical to our evolving healthcare strategy,” said Michael Leahan , EVP at TT Electronics EVP,. “Through our collaboration, this technology has incredible potential to disrupt an industry and ultimately improve patient outcomes – a mission both companies share.”
“This collaboration marks an important milestone for Radwave,” said Andrew Brown, CEO of Radwave Technologies. “We have said since our inception that we want to work with the best technologies and partners to revolutionise the EM tracking industry and create the most accurate EM tracking platform out there. This partnership with TT allows us to offer the complete tracking solution for our customers.”
