About Us

How it began

The emergence of Medical Precision BV and its game-changing technologies for radiotherapy markings arose from the demand of radiotherapists: “Could technology, as used in cosmetic permanent Make-up, be redeveloped towards an alternative for the painful traditional methods of “tattooing” for radiotherapy?”

The Way

In close cooperation with several radiotherapy institutions in the Netherlands a system was developed, based on a Permanent Makeup device. It was introduced as an experimental system in several Dutch hospitals as well as University hospitals. The system has proven to be a fantastic innovation compared to the traditional, ever painful, manual methods. Another advantage of the system, due to the design of the system and the safety needle, is the reduced risk of needlestick injuries for both operators and patients, reducing contamination risks dramatically.

The enthusiasm from hospitals using this prototype device of Medical Precision made Annelies Maas and her husband Roland Kortenhorst decide to start the development of the Comfort marker 2.0. This development was fully based on the ideas and experiences with the prototype system as has been used by many radiotherapists in several Dutch hospitals.

The pleasure with developing the Comfort Marker 2.0 made Medical Precision enthusiastic to combine forces with the technical development team, resulting in the establishment of Medical Precision Research & Development Centre in the spring of 2020. Medical Precision Development Center, located in the (technical university-) city of Enschede, focuses on both technology developments as well in regulatory affairs and Quality Management Systems for the Medical Instruments industry.

Seeking for ‘out of the box thinking’ new solutions for (mostly cancer) treatments and medical needs is what makes the Research and Development center different from many others. All regulatory aspects concerning such new developments are covered in house.
