Intelligent Photonics

Invuity’s patented Intelligent Photonics® devices provide direct visualization of the surgical cavity enabling enhanced precision, efficiency and safety. Our technology is integrated into sophisticated retractor systems, handheld devices and intracavity drop-in illuminators; each utilizing our proprietary waveguide technology that directs and shapes light into broad, uniform illumination to provide enhanced direct visualization inside dark surgical cavities. In addition, it converts traditional thermally hot, concentrated light output to thermally cool volumetric illumination throughout the entire surgical cavity.
