OUR MISSION

Improving the well-being of doctors. Empowering surgeons and giving them more control means relieving them of unnecessary stress and assuring their peace of mind in the operating room.

We started by helping a surgeon…

It all started as a project to help one surgeon in need. After helping Dr. Bogdan, ADORA won the 2nd place in the Innovation category at the Microsoft Imagine Cup.

To speed things up and expand the team we were accepted in the DFJ Incubator and Eleven Acclerator. Our effort was further recognized with awards, such as Startup of the year 2014 (best business model) and ranking among top 9 EU Startups 2014 (EU EIT ICT Labs), 2nd place at Zimmer-Biomet connected health competition (2016). All along we were teaming with hospitals and surgeons while addressing strategic partnerships.

…and developed a solution for a global market

Today we are growing and expanding across Europe, Asia and Middle East. ADORA is being deployed and tested in various clinical environments with major players in the world. Our product, The Touchless Medical Image Software Management for Surgeons, has been assessed and certified according to European Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC Annex II: CE 1304 by SIQ.

We believe that better healthcare and patient care begins by improving the well-being of doctors. ADORA is being built and developed with the one goal in mind: To help surgeons before, during and after surgery process.



ADORA would like to keep you up to date.

A project is nothing without a passionate team. We have been breathing as one since the beginning of our story and intend to keep it this way. We are a team of computer science engineers, medical sales specialists, surgeons, medical hardware experts and enterpreneuers that are always seeking for improvements and state of the art solutions.
