National Instruments Corporation (UK) Ltdvisit website

 

Optimedica has used LabVIEW and hardware from National Instruments to develop a medical instrument for treating retinal diseases; the automated laser-based process is far quicker and less painful for patients than the traditional method of using a manually targeted laser.

LabVIEW and FPGA hardware control laser for eye surgeryOptimedica Corporation specialises in helping ophthalmologists treat retinal disease and has developed the PASCAL (Pattern Scan Laser) photocoagulator. Using LabVIEW and a field-programmable gate array (FPGA) devices in this application helped Optimedica automate this proven procedure with speed and reliability.
