Medical technology company that unlocks the hidden power of blood flow data

NovaSignal was founded in 2013 with the sole mission of providing greater access to critical data needed by physicians to improve the lives of their patients. Co-Founder Dr. Robert Hamilton was pursuing his Ph.D. in the Department of Neurosurgery at UCLA and it was here that he developed NovaSignal’s core technology that is in use by physicians across the world today.

Robert worked daily in the neurocritical care unit, and conducted international research in Haiti, China, and Malawi where access to medical technology was limited. It was these combined experiences that inspired him to start NovaSignal, and after he was introduced to MBA students Dan Hanchey and Leo Petrossian the NovaSignal story began!

The Lucid™ Robotic System integrates cerebral ultrasound, robotics, and artificial intelligence and provides physicians with cerebral blood flow data which has proven to be critical for clinical decision making and improved patient outcomes.
