Our vision

At LIMIS Development we aim to increase patient safety by improving the standard of care through technological breakthroughs. We strive for meaningful innovation that improves surgical outcomes with less complications for patients worldwide. We combine specialized medical research on specific medical and surgical needs in the field of perfusion imaging, to create innovative and sustainable new technologies and products for multiple applications.

Our mission

We work in close collaboration with clinicians, hospitals, industry and universities to ultimately help improve the quality of care. With PerfusiX-Imaging we want to assist surgeons by providing them with relevant information: visualizing tissue perfusion. Helping them make better decisions in their day-to-day practices. PerfusiX-Imaging is a platform technology (patents granted) designed for multiple clinical needs and was initially focused on colon surgery towards reduction of anastomotic leakage. More clinical applications and new product developments are ongoing.
LIMIS has a ESG-policy, underpinning that involving Environment, Social en Governance aspects are important to us in our way of working.
