BGU, Cincy Child Hosp. Launch Needle Co.
June 26, 2016 | Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) and the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center have announced the formation of Xact Medical, a new company that will seek to commercialize the Fast Intelligent Needle Delivery (FIND) system. The FIND system uses robotics and ultrasound to guide and insert a needle into a patient’s body. This is particularly significant for children, whose vascular systems are so small and where precision can be critical. FIND will enhance clinician capabilities for precise, quick and convenient placement of a needle point that significantly improves the odds of successful vascular access on the first try.
