The sensor is 1.8 mm in diameter and monitors movement in 3D using electromagnetic techniques, providing information on position and orientation on a computer screen.

The sensor can be used in conjunction with other systems to help provide navigation capabilities inside the body and monitor the motion of muscles, joints, and other moving parts of the body.

The lightweight sensor provides telemetry at up to 240 updates per second. Multiple identical sensors can be placed in close proximity to each other while simultaneously providing position and orientation data.

As endovascular technologies improve, minimally invasive techniques to treat lower extremity vascular disease, abdominal aortic aneurysm, and carotid artery stenosis continue to evolve.
