In 2015 first protypes of a 3D head mounted microscope were developed and tested in a dental environment, at that stage technology was not capable of combining high quality image in a lightweight design. The demonstrator built in 2017 with the latest USB3.1 technology was tested among a group of different surgeons and confidence was born that now a system could be developed fulfilling surgeons demands for quality, weight & ergonomics, but also as a future innovative platform.
In July 2018 the company i-Med Technology was founded in a JV with the founders Vincent Graham and Jaap Heukelom together with Brightlands VPZL (Cooperation Maastricht University Hospital MUMC and the Brightlands Health Campus) and Quaestinvest B.V. The company is situated at Brightlands Health Campus Maastricht next to Maastricht University Medical Centre (MUMC+), which plays an important role as launching customer.
