Innovative Technology, Superior Results

Openwater's novel lasers, ultrasonics, holographic systems, and groundbreaking device architecture could provide diagnostic information, that until now required multi-million dollar scanners found in hospitals, in a low-cost portable form factor which could be used at the point of care.

Openwater is building a next-generation portable neural imaging system to enable early precision stroke detection & routing for rapid thrombectomy which could save millions of lives

Our Developments

Openwater technology uses highly coherent, near-infrared, laser light to measure blood flow. We believe that our unique technology will enable us to detect this laser light at up to ~1 million times more efficiently than is possible with traditional approaches. This increase in the amount of detected light could allow us to see deep into the body, with a blood flow fidelity of higher precision than with other reported devices.  

Over the last 4 years we have built new lasers, cameras, ultrasonic systems and put them together in slimmed down holographic system architectures - we have also designed and built new compute/control systems, electronics boards, firmware, and software to enable scanning of the body and invented and built novel image reconstruction techniques and image visualization software.

Technology that can scale

Openwater’s proprietary blood flow technology may be able to be applied to critical issues beyond stroke. Our technologies targeting both diagnostic and therapeutic applications have the potential to change the way we approach patient care.
