Powering the Future of Healthcare Technology

Market Overview

The future of healthcare technology is full of applications that value motion tracking and measurement that delivers instantaneous feedback, accuracy and speed. These are not only considered to be vital attributes for medical applications, but for some, they are an absolute requirement. For example, tracking the scalpel in a surgical procedure, measuring the alignment of a spine with a digitizer, or measuring the slightest of human movement are all applications that require precise motion tracking.

Who We Serve

Polhemus technology delivers full 6DOF motion tracking, measuring both position and orientation, and our proprietary AC electromagnetic technology requires no line-of-sight.  Because of this, our sensors have the capability to be embeddable, and our motion trackers are the clear choice for the leaders in healthcare simulation, including ultrasound simulators and training and simulation for surgery. Our trackers are being used by those in the rehabilitation and physical therapy market, utilizing our technology in virtual reality applications.

Our 3D laser scanning products have enabled areas within healthcare to be taken to the next level. Prosthetics and orthotics professionals use our trusted scanner because the scanner is easy to use, portable, and amputee patients report that because of our scanning technology, "their socket has a perfectly close and intimate fit."

Another area in health care revolutionized by our technology is precision localization. Our tracking technology can synchronize CT or MRI images with the patient’s actual position. Respiratory gaiting and other real-time movements can be monitored and measured enabling precise localization.

We offer an array of motion tracking products, 3D laser scanners, and eye tracking technology. Learn more about our Applications, Case Studies and Customers we cater to in the healthcare market. Get more information below.
