Proprio is a computational imaging company providing enhanced visualization systems for precision tasks, like brain surgery.
Proprio Vision is utilizing machine learning, automated intelligence, and mixed-reality user interfaces to develop a next generation surgical navigation and imaging platform to improve surgical accuracy, simplify surgical workflows, and improve patient outcomes.
Proprio Vision was co-founded in 2016 by Gabriel Jones, Samuel Browd, James Youngquist, Joshua Smith and Kenneth Denman. The company is headquartered in Seattle, Washington.
Proprio's vision is to move medicine out of the past and into a future that fully leverages not only existing technologies, but one where medical innovation can move at the pace of software development in other industries.
Proprio Vision fuses human and computer vision for augmented perception and cognition. Integrated layers of information for unprecedented imaging, navigation and guidance. Proprio captures the world as you see it, but also as youʼve never been able to see it before.
Proprio’s system is built to work in concert with earlier generations of imaging technologies. The system produces a live, real-time fused image allowing surgeons to essentially look inside a body without having to glance at another screen. Partners included companies such as Intel and HTC, as well as Seattle Children’s and University of Washington Medicine.
Proprio is backed by DCVC, Cota Capital, BOLD Capital Partners, Alan Frazier and others. The company raised $23M in Series A round on June 17, 2020. This brings Proprio's total funding to $30M to date.
