Tactile Imaging
Tactile Imaging is a medical imaging modality translating the sense of touch into a digital image. A set of 2D pressure patterns from surface of deformed soft tissue can be transformed in 3D tactile image which reveals anatomy and elasticity distribution of underlaying objects. Fusion of Tactile with Ultrasound Imaging is possible (see Figure 1).

Area of Focus
The company’s primary area of focus is women healthcare including pelvic diseased conditions, spontaneous preterm delivery and maternal birth trauma. We development innovative techniques that could potentially lead to safe and effective cure.

Explosive growth is predicted for Tactile Imaging Market in 2020-2026. The report also provides information and analysis of the global Tactile Imaging Market growth trajectories such as drivers, restraints, trends, and opportunities.

A publishing agreement has been signed with Elsevier, scientific publishing company, for a new book "Biomechanical Mapping of the Female Pelvic Floor". A target publication date is January 1, 2022.

Western IRB approved the clinical study "Biomechanical Assessment of The Female Pelvic Floor Under Regular Load" to identify changes in pelvic structures under regular load in military relative to civilian cohort (3 sites, 200 subjects).

Dr. van Raalte H, et al. abstract "Pelvic organ prolapse surgery improves biomechanical conditions and intergrity of the weak pelvic floor" was accepted for oral presentation at SGS 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting.

Dr. Egorov V, et al. article "Cervical characterization with tactile-ultrasound probe" was published in Open Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology 2020; 10: 85-99.
