HSD, a SteriPack Company, announced today that the SentiAR CommandEP™ System won a SILVER Edison Award. Named after Thomas Alva Edison, the Edison Awards have recognized and honored some of the most innovative new products, services, and business leaders in the world since 1987. SentiAR’s mission is to transform the experience for both patient and clinician in interventional procedures with a 3D augmented reality platform featuring real-time holographic visualization of the patient’s actual anatomy, “floating” over the patient.

The visualization is fully controllable “hands-free” by the clinician, providing an ergonomic breakthrough for the treatment and analysis of cardiac arrhythmias within an interventional catheter lab environment. SentiAR is developing the platform for eventual FDA submission. Visit the video here to learn more.

SentiAR was chosen as the 2021 Silver award winner by panel of judges comprised of more than 3,000 senior business executives and academics. Dr. Jennifer Silva commented that “The CommandEP System interface is so intuitive that physicians easily understand how to navigate and can instead focus on the real-time 3D patient specific data being presented. This makes a disruptive technology like ours easier for the end users to adopt into their clinical practice.”

“We were very impressed by the level of collaboration and discovery in this year’s entries,” said Edison Universe Executive Director, Frank Bonafilia. “Somehow, while facing the unprecedented challenges of this global pandemic, companies around the world figured out how to work safely and smartly and still innovate at an award-winning level.”
