Collaborate: Portable Osteometric Device

By October 27, 2023No Comments

FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of Mississippi State University’s Portable Osteometric Device technology, which is a portable device that uses laser sensors with time-of-flight technology to measure human skeletal material. The advantages of this technology are that it is cost effective, easy to transport, provides accurate and precise measurements, and it reduces reading errors.

This technology improves upon traditional measuring devices used in anthropology, archaeology, zoology, and forensics by improving the analysis of skeletal remains, including bone length. It aids in answering historical questions and identifying human remains for legal and forensic purposes, including human rights violations and repatriation efforts. The global forensic technology market size was valued at $4.88 billion in 2022 and is expected to increase to $10.65 billion in 2030.

Mississippi State University’s Portable Osteometric Device technology is ready for collaboration (licensing, partnerships, industry feedback, etc.). Is your company the right fit?
