Proximie, a technology platform digitalising operating theatres, has raised $38 million in Series B funding in a round led by US venture capital investors F-Prime Capital, Questa Capital, Maverick Ventures and Eight Roads Ventures, plus several existing investors, including UAE-based Global Ventures.
London-based Proximie allows surgeons to be virtually transported into operating theatres anywhere in the world to guide complex surgeries visually. The company stated that growth has been accelerated by Covid, with surgeons unable to travel.
The company said it has conducted tens of thousands of interactions over thousands of surgeries in 40 countries and 300 hospitals. An increasing majority are in the US, including UMass Memorial Health Care.
