“Our goal is to create solutions to problems that haven’t been solved before in the Cath lab,” said Roy. “We are directing our efforts to such well known challenges as capital constraints and disparate systems in this environment. The clinician’s focus should be on patients and procedures, while partnering with YorLabs to enable solutions for their technological needs. This is why we are assembling extensive technology and industry expertise with an experienced team dedicated to solving these issues.”
Today’s Cath Lab faces numerous challenges including capital constraints and disparate systems. YorLabs is developing a world class, intracardiac image guided therapy platform with dedicated application and procedural based settings. The YorLabs solution is designed to be an intuitive platform while eliminating large capital outlays and significantly enhancing workflow.
