Rotterdam, 28 March 2023. To create workspace and visibility during surgeries in the abdominal cavity, surgeons use an ‘insufflator’ that blows CO2 gas in the abdominal cavity. Insufflators currently work with a manually set pressure, which causes a risk of unnecessary high pressure. The Rotterdam startup Spatium Medical develops an innovative insufflator that personalizes and stabilizes the insufflation pressure: optimal pressure for every patient, while the workspace for the surgeon remains intact. This leads to less postoperative complications and potentially faster recovery. Together with Erasmus MC, proof-of-concepts fund UNIIQ invests a total of €350.000,- in the Rotterdam startup Spatium Medical. The investment was announced by alderman Simons.
