Penumbra recently announced that it has received FDA 510(k) clearance for its Real Immersive virtual reality system.
The Real Immersive System is an immersive virtual reality and display system that tracks upper extremity rehabilitation exercises for adults who have symptoms related to acute pain, cerebral palsy, stroke, orthopedic or neurodegenerative diseases. The exercise routines with the Real Immersive System are designed to be done in a seated position in a clinical environment, according to Penumbra.
The system features a clinician tablet, head-mounted display component, small sensors, large sensor, sensor charger, router, router battery, HMD controller, power cords and USB cables. The small and large sensors have mechanical and electrical components that can measure motion and direction in the physical space and then translate that information into a virtual environment.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
