MUMBAI:: American medical equipment maker Stryker is increasingly relying on its Gurgaon-based research centre for new products as it puts into motion an aggressive strategy to accelerate sales from emerging markets such as India and China.
The centre, housing 200 engineers and technologists, helped conceptualise, design and develop a no-frills power tool used for cutting, drilling and shaping bones during joint replacement and trauma procedures.
Stryker said the product, branded System G, is expected to be commercialized soon and that it will be positioned in the mid-tier segment of the market. The company has pi lot tested the tool at a Bengaluru cadaver lab for knee, hip and trauma procedures.
