October 13, 2023 – SentiAR, Inc., a provider of augmented reality (AR) visualization technology for medical procedures and a Magic Leap partner, has this week announced that it has received its second FDA 510K clearance for its CommandEP product, adding a new integration to the technology.
SentiAR’s CommandEP product integrates existing 3D cardiac mapping systems to create a real time 3D holographic interface that provides physicians with an interactive, 360-degree view of the patient’s specific anatomy. This allows physicians to deliver cardiac ablation therapy (procedures used to correct heart rhythm problems) with more precision, according to the company.
The CommandEP system utilizes the Magic Leap 2 headset, which is worn by the physician and allows for hands-free manipulation of the patient’s data, in addition to real-time heart anatomy and catheter locations inside the heart. The use of AR technology in this way provides physicians greater control of their digital tools during cardiac ablation procedures.
Berk Tas, CEO of SentiAR said: “We are excited to have gained our second 510K clearance for our innovative CommandEP technology with a new integration. This new clearance allows us to continue expanding our clinical and industry partnerships. Our physicians have been looking for a tool that can provide full 3D visualization in real-time while allowing hands-free control of images. We are honored to be able to provide this to our physicians.”
Gregory Michaud, MD, Clinical Director, Telemachus & Irene Demoulas Family Foundation Center for Cardiac Arrhythmias at Massachusetts General Hospital, said: “Our initial clinical experience with the CommandEP system has been promising. Being able to see patient anatomy in full 3D visualization with contact force allows us to identify targets and navigate more efficiently. We look forward to continuing our use of the system as new features are developed.”
SentiAR stated that it anticipates the completion of new clinical studies using its CommandEP application later this year.
