AVATAR MEDICAL, a ground-breaking spin-off from the Institut Pasteur and Institut Curie, leverages virtual reality and standard medical images (CT-scan, MRI) to instantly create realistic to-scale patient avatars for surgeons to improve their surgeries. Developed hand-in-hand with leading surgery departments, AVATAR MEDICAL radically changes how surgeons access, interpret and act upon the valuable clinical information contained in medical images. AVATAR MEDICAL is a French-American medical device startup moving at a fast pace. Created in July 2020, the company works with 20 hospitals (FR/USA), has two paying customers and a collaboration and distribution agreement with an orthopedic implant company. We aim at becoming the leader in 3D and VR surgery planning for hospitals and large MedTech companies.
