We are an immersive reality company using augmented and virtual reality technology to enhance surgery, save lives, and avoid complications. We are using diagnostic images (MRI, CT, Xray, Ultrasound) and overlaying them over you, the patient, during surgery. This gives the surgeon a guided map of your anatomy and your pathology or injury. This shows the surgeon where to cut and, more importantly, where not to cut. Every person’s anatomy differs not just on the outside, but on the inside as well. My heart and liver are not located exactly where your heart and liver are located. The surgeon has a general idea of where your main organs and arteries are, but that's all. This leads to complications and avoidable death. With our map they know exactly where they are going just by looking at you. This saves time in the OR, time under anaesthetic, and saves lives.

Our VR system allows the surgeon to practice performing the surgery in virtual space. My brain is pretty important to me and I'd rather a doctor performed a practice surgery in virtual space as many times as they need to in order to feel confident before they operate on me. It's also a fantastic tool for residents and medical students.

Our technology also provides a diagnostic component that radiologists can use before you ever hear about surgery. MRI, for example, is taken in 3D space then converted into 2D and viewed in slices. It's much better for physicians to view it in 3D where they can see the true shape and size and depth of a tumour or other pathology.

We are helping improve the efficiency and accuracy through every step of the process, from initial diagnosis to the surgical intervention.

It has led to the success of his past start-ups. His last start-up, Dryft, selling to a major Silicon Valley tech giant along with his code and patents. Scott is uniquely able to bring to life ideas that were previously science fiction. ARIS MD is very lucky to have this visionary.
Christy Seville (Communications Director) has a passion for participating in the success of start-ups.

She has explored her attraction to the technology industry through the lens of a communications professional, helping to establish ARIS MD’s brand and build their social media presence. ARIS MD is fortunate to have her on the team.

Aris MD uses a patent-pending Augmented and Virtual Reality system to help bring medicine into the 21st century. Using diagnostic imaging combined with Immersive Reality, the Aris MD system provides visibility and accuracy to surgeons and other practitioners for diagnostic and surgical use.

Our vision is to create innovative products that push the envelope of what is possible.
