HISAKA Signed DSM System Licensing Agreement with Exploit Technologies
3 October 2011 — On 30th September 2011, Hisaka (Singapore) Pte Ltd (“HISAKA”), the wholly owned subsidiary of Hisaka Holdings Ltd, officially signed a technology license agreement with Exploit Technologies Pte Ltd (“ETPL”), the commercialization arm of Singapore’s Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), for Digital Stereo Microscope (DSM), an innovative medical technology.
Under the agreement, HISAKA acquires the rights to use the licensed technology to develop the DSM system for human surgical applications.
The DSM concept was conceived by Professor Lim Beng Hai from the National University of Singapore Hospital (NUSH) and developed with the National University of Singapore’s Robotics and Control Group under the Department of Mechanical Engineering. This clinician-researcher collaboration was funded by A*STAR and ETPL with the aim to develop a prototype for microsurgical applications.
Unlike existing surgical display technologies which require surgeons to fix their eyes on optical microscope eyepieces for long periods of time, the DSM system consists of a digital touch-screen panel with a large field of view and intuitive touch-screen controls which reduces exertion and stress on the surgeon. The design of the DSM system maintains the hands and display panel in line of sight of the surgeon which facilitates better hand-eye coordination. With these benefits, the Digital Stereo Microscope (DSM) system aims to replace the current optical surgical microscope used in microsurgeries.
Besides real-life surgical applications, the DSM system is also expected to be an invaluable aid for medical training and research as the digital screen allows annotation and measurement – making it an essential teaching and research tool.
“DSM system is the next step HISAKA has taken after PBW – we are confident that it would enhance the company’s medical portfolio and help increase our market awareness.” said HISAKA’s CEO, Mr. Jackie Cheng, referring to Portable Blood Warmer (PBW) System which is also a technology licensed product from A*STAR.
Moving forward, HISAKA is committed to develop, manufacture, market and distribute the DSM system worldwide.
