Alumni Greg Kolovich, MD and Evan Ruff reach another milestone of success as they launch their extremely interesting medical device startup, OXOS Medical. They have won first-round funding for their Micro C handheld X-ray device in the U.S. Army xTechSearch competition
From the Micro C Imaging website (https://www.microcimaging.com/): “Existing medical imaging devices are too large, complex, and risk-prone for today’s medical professionals to be successful. The doctor’s office of today and tomorrow is designed for efficient and effective treatment of more patients than before. Micro C revolutionizes the field with a hand-held, x-ray and digital imaging device no larger or heavier than a digital camera.
Where a typical mini C-arm device is similar in size to a hospital bed or wheel chair and can barely fit through doorways, the Micro C system can be carried from room to room with ease. With an ergonomically-designed hand-held fluoroscopy device and separate, book-sized image receptor, Micro C offers a level of flexibility to healthcare providers never before seen.
A team of professionals and medical experts has designed Micro C to revolutionize the industry. Years of experience with medical imagery and surgical procedures has culminated in the development of this innovative new mobile-first technology.“
