NaviNetics is a medical device and technology company founded by researchers, engineers and neurosurgeons from the Neural Engineering Laboratories of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.
NaviNetics originated through the Mayo Clinic Employee Entrepreneurial Program. This program allows Mayo Clinic researchers and developers to license their technology to NaviNetics for continued development and commercialization. Resulting from this unique company origination, NaviNetics maintains an in-house working contractual relationship with the Mayo Clinic’s Neural Engineering laboratories and Division of Engineering. This collaborative development allows use of Mayo Clinic research laboratories, engineering and machine shop facilities, MRI Scanner, CT Scanner, human anatomy lab, animal surgical facilities and human operating rooms. The original researchers and developers continue to share their expertise as NaviNetics leadership.
