RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
Advanced Tactile Imaging, Inc. is committed to pursuing innovations in women healthcare. We are working to address the needs in characterization of the diseased conditions and soft tissues in surgery, prediction of treatment outcome and treatment options. Our efforts are focused on development and validation of techniques that could potentially lead to safe and effective cure.
The main goal of this project is to develop a cost-effective device for detecting conditions leading to spontaneous preterm delivery to save children’s lives.
Vaginal Ultrasound Imager
This project targets the development of a new device for real-time functional imaging of the female pelvic floor in urogynecology.
Laparoscopic Tissue Monitor
This project targets the development of a new laparoscopic probe for quantitative tissue characterization in urogynecological surgery.
Biomechanical Mapping Under Regular Load
The objective of the study is to identify new clinical markers for earlier detection and characterization of female pelvic floor disorders under regular physical load in military relative to a civilian cohort for the same age group.
