A full suite of customizable 5DOF and 6DOF sensors are available for seamless integration into the smallest OEM medical instruments and most complex tracking applications.
Track up to 32 5DOF or 16 6DOF Sensors at Once
Aurora® electromagnetic 5DOF and 6DOF sensors can be embedded into OEM medical instruments such as catheters, endoscopes, and ultrasound probes. One of our sensors measures just 0.3 mm in diameter—the smallest on the market—for integration into a guidewire or at the tip of a needle. The embedded EM sensor is what allows the OEM medical instrument to be localized and visualized as it’s navigated against patient imaging during in-vivo procedures. No line of sight to the sensor is required.
Up to 32 5DOF or 16 6DOF sensors can be used at once, which allows for multiple instruments and/or patient references to be tracked simultaneously within the same measurement volume, during the same procedure. The sensors’ cost-effective design allows it to be used for disposable applications.
The following represents our standard Aurora EM sensors; more sensors are available.

Download our 12-page Education Guide to learn how you can integrate Electromagnetic Tracking Technology into your OEM medical devices to:
- Navigate instruments safely and reliably through complex anatomy.
- Target small treatment areas with
sub-millimeter accuracy and precision.
- Visualize real-time position as well as orientation of an instrument.
- Track instruments even when they
are out of sight.
- Embed micro sensors into flexible and
NDI tracking and measurement products are general metrology components that can be integrated into customer products, research experiments, and/or as components of medical devices that require precision measurement and tracking. While NDI components and technology can be integrated into original equipment manufacturer (OEM) medical devices, they are not specifically intended for a given application and, as such, have not been developed or manufactured in accordance with medical device standards. It remains the responsibility of the OEM customer or end-user to determine and test the suitability of NDI components and technology for their intended use, including performing any required ethics approval, verification, and validation required to demonstrate suitability and compliance. System-level testing, certification, and validation are the responsibility of the original equipment manufacturer or the applicable end-user and should be completed prior to the use of NDI products or technologies in any application.
