Spineart, a leading provider of spine surgery implants and eCential Robotics, a growth MedTech company that designs and produces an open system unifying robotics, surgical navigation, and 2D/3D robotic imaging, today announced they entered a long-term collaboration agreement.
The collaboration between the two companies involves research and development, marketing, and commercialization. Training centers for augmented spine surgery trial, both in the United States and Europe, will be available to surgeons in 2023. With a streamlined workflow and a smartphone-inspired user interface, spine surgeons will benefit from eCential Robotics’ state-of- the-art integrated platform, fully compatible with Spineart’s comprehensive and proven portfolio of innovative spine implants.
Jerome Trividic, Spineart CEO, commented: “There’s a strong cultural and geographical fit between our companies. Combining and leveraging eCential Robotics’ technology in navigation and robotics with Spineart’s expertise in Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, is the ultimate expression of our Quality, Innovation, Simplicity philosophy. We strongly believe that our combined efforts will rapidly establish the integrated platform as the reference in augmented spine surgery with navigation and robotic assistance”.
Stéphane Lavallée, eCential Robotics CEO, declared: “We are pleased to collaborate with Spineart, a robust and fast-growing partner, which enables us to develop and market the equivalent of the smartphone for medical robots. Thanks to our “open” strategy, eCential Robotics is already collaborating, and will intensify its partnerships, with several technology companies and implant manufacturers to associate our platform with diverse 3D imaging devices and proprietary applications”.
