Lumoptik, Inc is a medical device company that has developed the BrightPointTM Epidural System to assist physicians with needle placement during epidural procedures for childbirth, spine/back pain and surgical procedures such as knee and hip replacements. Over 11 million epidural procedures are performed in the US each year with over 30 million performed worldwide. The worldwide standard of practice is the Loss of Resistance (LOR) method which is performed free hand by physicians with no mechanical or electronic needle guidance. The manual LOR method has been in use since the l920's with little change. Because it is based solely on manual hand guidance, it is associated with a significant failure rate and currently takes 50 -100 procedures (patients) for training new clinicians.
