InnerOptic Technology was spun off from at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill to commercialize their breakthrough medical visualization technology. InnerOptic has an exclusive license to UNC's patents in minimally invasive surgery, medical visualization and image-guided surgery. With grants from the NSF and the NIH, InnerOptic has extended this technology with its own patent-pending innovations. Located near Research Triangle Park, NC, InnerOptic has close relationships with industry pioneers from research teams at Duke and UNC, and access to their state-of-the-art medical facilities.

InnerOptic develops real-time visualization systems for use in minimally-invasive surgical procedures, leveraging our expertise in:

•             Laparoscopy and laparoscopic ultrasound;
•             Image-guided surgery;
•             Medical visualization;
•             Real-time tracking and spatial coordination;
•             Optically based medical devices; and
•             Human perception, factors and computer interaction

InnerOptic has adapted this breakthrough research into a flexible technology foundation to support a wide variety of products to improve minimally-invasive surgery. Two of the initial products resulting from this research are the InVision System (IVS) and the 3D Laparoscope.
