According to the Global Health and Aging report published
by the WHO, the number of people aged 65 and older (geriatric population) is
rise from 524 million in 2010 to roughly 1.5 billion by 2050. Accordingly, the main cause of death has
shifted from contagions to chronic conditions which include cancer, diabetes, and heart diseases. The
global incidence of cancer is expected to increase to nearly 27 million by 2030. The geriatric
members of society can rarely undergo an open surgery as part of their tumor therapy, due to
additional health conditions and expected complications. A plausible solution to this issue is the
minimally invasive cancer treatments, which have a lower risk of postoperative complications and
require a shorter hospital stay and recovery time.
Our goal is to create and market worldwide the first CT-system solely dedicated to minimally invasive tumor interventions, facilitating both physicians and patients.
