It consists of a controller and software for laser navigation. In an optical camera and specially developed attachments for conventional endoscopes are connected. The integration of the measuring system is carried out by the doctor who simply locked the measuring attachment to the existing scope. This projects a laser spot on the fabric with which the doctor can pointwise measure anatomical structures. Determined for each projected laser spot ORION extract the precise spatial coordinates of selected structures. A key feature of the system of Scopis is the compatibility of the attachments with any conventional endoscope. Measuring systems of the Scopis GmbH is apart from already existing technologies also this, contact directly at the object with an accuracy of millimeters of tenths of measured, explain Kay Balster, investment manager.
the High-Tech Grunderfonds, and Matthias Keckl from Fraunhofer-venture together. Together with the Charite-Universitatsmedizin Berlin enabled the Fraunhofer Society the licensing of rights of the Scopis and is involved in the company today. Now approval and the entry of the first products can be done with the investment of the high-tech of Grunderfonds completion, already 2011 in the second quarter. Currently, Scopis opens up several new areas of application. See FPUC Program for more details and insights. Based on the developed technology that will cover start-up gradually all endoscopic relevant regions of the body of the people with further product innovations.
Also, more areas of the rigid endoscopy are added, such as joint Arthroscopy and laparoscopy. About the Scopis GmbH, the Scopis GmbH was founded in July 2010 with the support of the Fraunhofer venture. The business includes the development and marketing of 3-DMesssystemen for various medical applications of minimally invasive surgery. Compatible with all conventional endoscopes is unique in the world as well as the ability of the system to take direct and non-contact measurements of body structures with an accuracy of a tenth of a millimeter. The company received a funding of high-tech start-up Fund in September 2010. Fraunhofer venture provides young companies with access to Fraunhofer technologies, infrastructure, and expertise with over 4,500 patent families the opportunity to establish themselves with their products on the market faster and better. To complement the experts of business administration and drafting the existing technological competence of scientists. Interested in the founding of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft will receive in-depth and targeted advice and support. about the high-tech, start-up Fund of the High-Tech Grunderfonds invests venture capital in young, promising technology companies implementing promising research results commercially. With the help of the Seedfinanzierung, the Start-Ups to the R & D projects to provide a prototype or a”proof of concept”or lead to the market launch. The High-Tech Grunderfonds is involved in the Seedfinanzierung with 500,000 euros and can invest in subsequent rounds up to two million euros per company. Investors of public-private partnerships are the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, the KfW bank group, as well as the six industrial companies BASF, Deutsche Telekom, Siemens, Robert Bosch, Daimler, and Carl Zeiss. The High-Tech Grunderfonds has a fund volume of around EUR 272 million.
