The 3D Workstation*
The company is also developing an advanced workstation for the U.S. market, designed to generate a 3D skeletal reconstruction from the two simultaneous planar images. This planned product will also feature automatic measurement software designed to calculate a variety of measurements and angle calculations between individual bones and joints, potentially helping to evaluate global balance and posture. Currently, the 3D workstation is commercially available only in Europe and Canada.
About Biospace med
Biospace med was founded on a unique partnership between a Nobel Prize-winning physicist, a team of biomedical engineers, orthopedic surgeons, and radiologists who have developed a complete orthopedic imaging solution. The company's lead product, EOS ultra low dose 2D|3D Xray imager, allows full-body imaging of patients in a weight-bearing position that will enable global assessment of balance and posture. EOS is a total solution in orthopedic imaging now available in the U.S since receiving FDA 510k clearance. An advanced workstation*, designed to generate a 3D skeletal image from the two planar images, is under development. The company has corporate headquarters in Paris and Atlanta with an office in Montreal, and is targeting a $2 billion orthopedic imaging marketplace. Biospace med is venture-backed by a pool of investors led by Edmond de Rothschild Investment Partners. Learn more at http://www.biospacemed.com.
