Therapixel, a Sophia Antipolis and Paris, France-based startup that makes touchless image navigation system designed for surgery, raised €600k in funding.
Backers included PACA Investissement, Var Business Angels, Créazur, CPG and IT Translation.
The company intends to use the funds to increase its commercialization and internazionalization efforts.
Founded in 2013 by Olivier Clatz and Pierre Fillard as a spin-off from Inria Sophia, Therapixel provides a touchless image navigation system for interventional radiology or surgery. It allows surgeons to access medical images, acquired before or during surgery, autonomously and keep their equipment sterile. It works via a motion sensor positioned on top of the screen, which transforms hand gestures into control commands for the system.
