Enhatch and Hololight Partner to Launch Streaming Platform to Deliver Augmented Reality and Virtual Training for Surgery
Immersive streaming technology provides power and speed for Augmented and Virtual Reality during surgical trainings, intraoperative procedures; saving time and money, improving outcomes.
HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J., June 23, 2022 – Enhatch, the creator of the industry’s first Intelligent Surgery Ecosystem, connecting companies, technologies, and surgeons to streamline clinical workflows and personalize surgery, today announces a partnership with Hololight, a company specialized in immersive technologies, to deliver a new Extended Reality (XR) streaming platform for intraoperative procedures and surgical training using Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR).
The Hololight partnership allows surgical teams to train virtually, both independently and in a collaborative environment, in AR and VR through XR streaming technology – a technology that enables an unprecedented level of detail and performance for a faster and safer way of developing, experiencing, and interacting with 3D content.
Using Hololight’s real-time streaming technology embedded in Enhatch’s Intelligent Surgery Ecosystem allows the visualization and manipulation of 2D and 3D content during virtual training and surgeries, creating a scalable solution for AR/VR in the operating room.
“AR and VR are gaining significant traction within the medical community, but it comes with heavy development costs,” says Peter Verrillo, CEO of Enhatch. “With the ability to access this valuable data in a streaming format, surgeons can view high-resolution 3D models in surgery, in cadaver labs or in their living rooms. This partnership creates a scalable on-demand model, which will make AR/VR accessible to organizations that previously felt the investment was out of reach.”
Typical VR and AR projects can cost $250-$1M per product line, whereas the Enhatch ecosystem can deploy your current assets like 3D models of instruments, surgical training videos and other interactive content for a low fee per use.
“Our powerful XR streaming platform can greatly improve intraoperative conditions and patient outcomes,” noted Florian Haspinger, CEO of Hololight. “We are pleased to partner with Enhatch to deploy this growing technology globally to improve surgical outcomes.”
Enhatch is a medical technology company that created the industry’s first Intelligent Surgery Ecosystem, connecting companies, technologies, and surgeons to provide insights from every surgery, patient, and device to personalize surgery and elevate patient care. The Intelligent Surgery Ecosystem harnesses the power of AI to streamline each phase of surgery, to achieve better patient outcomes, unprecedented efficiency and accuracy in patient-specific procedures.
