About us

ROPCA’s history

ROPCA started at the University of Southern Denmark as a project that aimed to create an automated system for locating and ultrasound scanning hand joints on Rheumatoid Arthritis patients.

In 2019 the ROPCA was established as a company, founded by Søren Just Andreasen, MD and specialist in rheumatology, and Thiusius Rajeeth Savarimuthu, professor in healthcare robotics and artificial intelligence at the University of Southern Denmark.

ROPCA’s goal is to develop a fully automated ultrasound scanning system with artificial intelligence performing the disease activity scoring. The system is designed and constructed for hospitals worldwide, with the intent of improving the lives of patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
In 2021 ROPCA has submitted the first products for CE-marking in the EU.
