ContinUse BiometricsNon-contact and continous optical sensor for authentication and bio-sensing

ContinUse Biometrics

Our unique laser based remote sensing technology extracts heart beating rate, variability and shape (used for authentication), respiration rate, blood pressure and pulse wave velocity. Our optical sensor measures nano-vibrations of the illuminated tissue and associates it with many bio-parameters while providing continuous, remote and agnostic hand held bio-sensor.


Cambridge ConsultantsAxsis micro-robotic system – a vision of future surgical robotics

Cambridge Consultants

Robotics is already transforming surgery. Axsis is a novel micro-robot that demonstrates how the next wave of miniature systems can address the needs of a wider range of surgical procedures –such as cataract surgery– currently not benefiting from the advantages of surgical robots due to the limitations of existing solutions.
