Smart Tools

Briteseed is delivering the first hyperspectral imaging technology integrated into laparoscopic and robotic surgical tools. This platform will provide real-time sensing of critical structures to improve safety and outcomes of surgical procedures.

Briteseed is developing a suite of surgical instruments, including advanced energy, stapler, and dissection solutions. This platform will provide dynamic information to surgeons about the presence of hidden structures - think blood vessels, ureters, and nerves - as well as the quality of tissues.
