The event began with a keynote from Tom Emrich of Super Ventures, followed by two expert panels of startup founders and industry investors sharing key insights, and finished with a round of lighting pitches from emerging local startups. Precision OS took the top prize in the lighting pitch competition among some great fellow VR/AR startups here in Vancouver.
The event gave us a great opportunity to demo early versions of our products. Precision OS’ Products include an educational platform termed “Trauma OS” and a preoperative planning tool called “PreOp OS”. Trauma OS is a virtual reality (VR) platform that allows students, resident, surgeons, and Implant company representatives to practice and perform procedures in VR.
PreOp OS is a pre-surgical planning tool. Surgeons may upload their patients’ advanced imaging whereby Precision software will convert the data for use in VR. Preop OS allows for a greater understanding of fractures and metrics for implant position and use.
