Caira’s proprietary technology seeks to revolutionize the usability, safety, and accessibility of advanced surgical navigation and robotics for orthopedic surgery. The company’s first product is a breakthrough sub-millimeter-accurate radar tracking system for knee replacement surgery. The system leverages advanced radar technologies to overcome line-of-sight interference and eliminate invasive surgical hardware and high-cost, large footprint capital equipment inherent with incumbent surgical tracking systems.

The strategic Medtech leader of more than 20 years explained, “the series seed funding enables Caira to continue developing our breakthrough technology and positively impact orthopedic surgery and patient welfare. Additionally, the composition, commitment, and enthusiasm of our investor syndicate ensure that Caira will have continued access to the funding and resources necessary to realize our technology vision and meet our commercial objectives.”
