Healthcare startup recognized for its unique approach to surgical navigation, ranking #10 in the Medical Devices category.

Proprio has been named to Fast Company's prestigious annual list of the Most Innovative Companies of 2024. This year’s list shines a spotlight on businesses that are shaping industry and culture through their innovations. These organizations are setting new standards and achieving remarkable milestones in all sectors of the economy. Alongside the World's 50 Most Innovative Companies, Fast Company recognizes 606 organizations across 58 sectors and regions.

Chosen out of thousands of applicants, Proprio's selection underscores its dedication to enhancing surgical navigation and advancing patient outcomes. Its flagship product, Paradigm™, merges artificial intelligence, computer vision, and light field imaging to provide surgeons with a real-time, three-dimensional perspective of the surgical field. The system provides clinicians with improved visualization capabilities, helping them to make well-informed decisions and perform procedures with greater precision. By eliminating the need for intraoperative scans, Paradigm™ reduces radiation exposure while streamlining surgical workflows.

“Our list of the Most Innovative Companies is both a comprehensive look at the innovation economy and a snapshot of the business trends that defined the year,” said Fast Company editor-in-chief Brendan Vaughan. “We saw extraordinary innovation across the board in 2023, but we also saw a handful of clear patterns: the growing footprint and impact of AI, the triumphant return of live events, and great leaps forward in climate tech. We face daunting challenges on many fronts, but the solutions we celebrate in MIC give me plenty of hope about the future.”
