Clear Guide Medical announces that its first clinical product, the Clear Guide ONE has received a Medical Device Licence from Health Canada. This allows the marketing and sale of the device in Canada.
The Clear Guide ONE revolutionizes medical image guidance with a compact, ergonomic, easy-to-use ultrasound probe attachment that provides accurate and immediate real-time needle guidance. The Clear Guide ONE allows the physician to visualize the needle path on-screen before entering the patient, allowing better planning of the intervention and more accuracy in placement. The Clear Guide ONE is a radical innovation in the field of image guidance because of its price and ease-of-use. The system makes using ultrasound guidance for inserting needles into patients the norm, resulting in better patient access and outcomes, and reduced health care costs.
