Aurora Sensors

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.
