SAVANNAH, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, February 3, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — As Micro C™ targets the high growth market of surgeries of the extremities, Greg Kolovich MD/MPH and Chief Medical Officer, Evan Ruff, CEO, and Kirby Sisk, COO are leveraging the additional funding to complete Q2 2017 Micro C™ milestones: prototype build, beta testing, FDA submission, and go-to-market launch activities including demonstrations at leading professional academies for orthopedic surgeons.
“At our sessions with orthopedic surgeons and ambulatory surgery center management, the feedback is consistent: They want to use the Micro C as soon as commercially available,” remarks Dr. Kolovich. “They are impressed with how we have incorporated multiple innovations into a compact digital X-ray and multi-modal camera that also integrates real-time, HIPPA compliant data and image transmission together with accurate billing and much greater accuracy, clarity, safety, and speed.”
Georgia-based technology boosters, including the Technology Association of Georgia and Georgia Tech’s Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC) have recognized Micro C’s prowess with TAG’s Most Innovative Company award and ATDC’s Geekend Pitch Contest first place award.
