In November 2020, Custom Surgical launched the MicroREC App, a unique mobile application for managing images and videos of microscopy procedures captured on smartphones using the MicroREC optical system. The company previously launched the MicroREC hardware solution for connecting diagnostic and surgical microscopic equipment to smartphones in order to capture high-quality imaging in a fast and efficient way. The MicroREC system incorporates quality German optics, innovative engineering, and additive manufacturing, with a modular design that allows doctors to customize the device and achieve compatibility with a large number of microscopy equipment brands and smartphone brands.
Adopted globally by medical professionals in over 30 countries, the use of the MicroREC highlighted the need for a software solution on smartphones tailored to the specific requirements of capturing microscopy imaging.
As a result, Custom Surgical developed the MicroREC App for smartphones as a perfect complement to the hardware solution already on the market.
The app enables doctors to capture images and videos from microscopes in the vertical or horizontal format, no matter the positioning of the system on the microscope equipment. Even more, it gives them the ability to optimize the camera’s settings for high-quality imaging depending on the lighting conditions for each microscopy procedure and operating environment.
In the era of COVID-19, medical professionals are embracing more than ever digital solutions that allow collaboration and continuous medical education, making this app a valuable tool for telemedicine, training, sharing on social media platforms and presentations in webinars.
The app is now available for free on the iOS App Store and it is scheduled to have an Android version released at the beginning of 2021.
