David Hunter, managing director of NESTA Investments, says: ‘This kind of cutting-edge technology can make a real difference to both practitioners and patients involved in this type of delicate surgery and is a great example of how early-stage investment can make a real, tangible impact.’
 
This follows a pre-seed investment in the company in March last year of £35,000.

NESTA has an investment fund for early stage high-growth technology companies and invests around £10 million per year through direct and fund investments.
