Con una media de oftalmólogos por paciente extremadamente baja en la India, 3nethra se ha diseñado para que se pueda operar a las personas por medio de técnicos con la formación básica, además de poder desplegarse en áreas remotas, mejorando el acceso de forma exponencial a los tratamientos oftalmológicos de calidad. Gracias a su facilidad de uso y capacidad técnica y de imagen superior, el dispositivo ha conseguido un reconocimiento amplio dentro de la comunidad oftalmológica de la India, además de recibir una atracción gomal amplia, con más de 220 instalaciones en 14 países hasta la fecha, y desde entonces ha controlado 600.000 ojos en todo el mundo.

"La aceptación por medio de la fraternidad oftalmológica y su recomendación de los inversores de marca nos ha motivado para mejorar hacia la cumplimentación de la misión de Forus. Esta inversión será crucial de cara a la ayuda de conseguir el crecimiento por medio del fortalecimiento de nuestra cadena de suministro y redes de escala, además del desarrollo de nuevos productos", explicó K. Chandrasekhar, consejero delegado de Forus.

"3Nethra es un producto revolucionario que puede hacer frente a la tercera parte de la población del mundo que necesita una prueba de ojos de coste contenido. Con su tecnología profunda y gran ejecución, Forus ha conseguido una amplia atracción a nivel internacional. Estamos ilusionados de asociarnos con Forus en este viaje y en torno a su éxito", comentó Anand Daniel, director de Accel Partners.

Ajay Kumar Vij, consejero delegado de AHF, indicó en torno a ello: "Nos ha impresionado la proposición de valor única y profunda gestión de Forus, además del impacto social creado por su producto 3nethra. Estamos impacientes por asociarnos con K. Chandrasekhar, el doctor Shyam V. Rao y su equipo en su viaje de construcción de un desarrollador destacado en el campo de los dispositivos médicos en la India y en todo el mundo".

"Creemos en la tecnología de control previo de Forus, ya que cuenta con el potencial de ser un sistema de cambio del juego para hacer frente a los problemas relacionados con la salud preventiva en todo el mundo. Como inversor primario en Forus, estamos muy contentos de ver la escala de la compañía que pasa de fortaleza a fortaleza y seguimos estando comprometidos con la ruta de crecimiento elegida", explicó Ranjith Menon, vicepresidente senior de IDG Ventures India.
