Platform Technology for
       Minimally Invasive Medical Devices




Path Scientific's technology is based upon electrical impedance controlled drilling of skin, nail or other tissue.

Transdermal/Podiatric Device (PathFormer)
Openings are created painlessly in the stratum corneum of the skin or nail plate by sensing the drop from the high electrical impedance of stratum corneum/nail plate to the low impedance of the underlying tissues, triggering rapid cutter withdrawal before reaching the nerve bed.

Orthopedic Device (PrecisionDrill)
A drop in electrical impedance from high (no contact) to low as the drill contacts the bone is sensed. This initiates the drilling to preset depth or just beyond the dorsal side of the bone by counting the number of steps taken by the stepper motor driven drill assembly combined with sensing the drill motor current.
