UDINE, Italy, Dec. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — LimaCorporate is pleased to announce the FDA 510K approval for Smart SPACE Shoulder 3D Planner & 3D Positioner. Smart SPACE is an innovative digital platform developed by TechMah Medical thanks to collaboration with LimaCorporate, who entered into a milestone-based acquisition agreement last year.
