28 Dec Prisma Partners with Littleton Equine Medical Center and Broadens Community of Equine Practices to be Early Recipient of Its Robotic Imaging System
Newark, Calif. – Dec. 28, 2020– Prisma has come to mutually agreeable terms with Littleton Equine Medical Center to be a recipient of Prisma’s robotic imaging system. This agreement further validates the equine veterinary community’s demand for Prisma’s novel technology that produces full-body imaging of a conscious and standing horse.
“We established relationships with some of the country’s largest and most prestigious practices,” said Michael Silver, Prisma’s founder and CEO. “These practices were an invaluable resource during the early development process that ensured that the system would work well for the equine patient. As we approach commercial readiness, we want to have a few early systems out in the field to ensure they will function perfectly prior to scalable operations. Meeting or exceeding our customer’s expectations is of paramount importance.”
Prisma and Dr. Kelly Tisher, DVM, owner and managing partner of Colorado-based Littleton Equine, initially met in 2018. Since then, there has been an ongoing dialogue to make Littleton Equine one of the early recipients of a Prisma System. “I could not envision a better partner for Prisma to work with and to establish one of our early systems,” Silver said.
“We’re excited by the prospect of performing more comprehensive diagnostics and delivering even more exceptional patient care made possible by the technology in Prisma’s system,” Dr. Tisher said.
Silver estimates that the system will be ready for installation by late 2021. Prisma is in discussions with several other top veterinary practices as additional potential candidates to receive one of its early systems.
