Public Profile

In July 2000 HT Medical Systems Inc, formerly known as High Techsplanations Inc, was acquired by Immersion Corporation, (NASDAQ: IMMR). The firm was renamed Immersion Medical and continued to compete for SBIR awards under that new name. Immersion Medical is focused to the field of haptics-the science of touch. Immersion provides haptic technologies and software that allow people to use their sense of touch when operating various digital devices. The company offers TouchSense Core software for incorporation into mobile devices, video console gaming systems, consumer electronics, medical simulation and surgical robotic systems, and automotive controls. The firm also offers TouchSense Engage, a suite of design tools and software development kits to design and integrate tactile effects into mobile games, ads, and videos. Immersion Corporation licenses TouchSense software to original equipment manufacturers or their suppliers. The company also licenses its customers to implement the licensed software in their products. In addition, Immersion offers turn-key engineering and integration services, design kits for prototyping, authoring tools, application programming interfaces, and platform independent solutions; and develops hardware and software technologies that are compatible with industry standards.
