whitesonic GmbH, an Aachen, Germany-based developer of an ultrasound scanner for digital dental impressions in the field of dental prosthetics, raised a six-figure seed funding round.
High-Tech Gründerfonds made the investment.
The company intends to use the funds to further develop its scanner. A prototype can be used on patients as early as 2017. Approval as a medical product should then be obtained upon the completion of an evaluation phase. Market launch is scheduled for 2018.
A spin-off of RWTH Aachen University and led by Managing Director Christopher Steinfelsner, whitesonic has developed an ultrasound scanner that makes an impression of the structure of the teeth in a non-invasive and radiation-free way using high-frequency acoustic waves.
