Our mission is to develop innovative technology with steering capability that will enable greater precision while targeting difficult to reach lung nodules.
Endobronchial tools that offer articulation at the distal tip to enable physicians to reach difficult targets with predictable tool positioning and enhanced precision, including those outside the airway.
