"MicroREC" - Record microscopic procedures with your phone

€15,675

MicroREC was created to let all the physicians tell their story. The common microscopic recording systems are simply too expensive and do not offer the functionality  and quality our current smartphones provide us. MicroREC is a high quality optic system that attaches to the microscope and allows surgeons to capture images and videos of their procedures*. Our project has already been evaluated by the best surgeons, but with your help, we want to bring MicroREC to life and sell it around the world at the best price. Every microscope user should be able to record and capture their procedures with the best quality and at affordable prices. MicroREC works for ophthalmologists, neurosurgeons, otorhinolaryngologist, any other medical specialty and scientists that utilice microscopes.

  The purpose of the MicroREC is to democratize the comunication of microscopic procedures. Allowing users to use their smartphones with the microscopes will guarantee better information sharing and open the possibility of tele-medicine in remote areas. 

* MicroREC allows video and image capturing, but it should not be considered for any diagnostic purpose.

  • Who are we?

Custom Surgical is a surgeon’s best ally. We are here to help surgeons bring their ideas to life. We want to help you digitalize and prototype your own designs for medical devices and instruments. Our expertise in engineering, design and additive manufacturing (3D printing) is our key to help you manufacture surgical instruments and medical devices.

Risks and challenges

We want to stay independent and offer our technologies at affordable prices. We started off using FDM 3D printers for our designs, but we want to deliver the best quality and finish for the products we will be delivering to you. That's why we would be migrating to SLS printing with your support. We currently have a limited number of case designs, but with the support of our backers, we will be expanding our designs to cover all of the Samsung and iPhone smartphones available on the market.
