Safe Orthopaedics announces the signature of an agreement with Brainlab for the development of navigation for Safe Orthopaedics instruments
- Making Safe Orthopaedics instruments navigable with the Brainlab ecosystem
- Making minimally invasive surgery safe
Éragny-sur-Oise, February 21, 2022 at 5:45 p.m. CET – Safe (FR0013467123 – ALSAF), a company specializing in the design, manufacture and marketing of ready-to-use technologies for back surgery, particularly for the safe treatment of emergency vertebral fractures, announces the signature of a development agreement with Brainlab to make Safe Orthopaedics’ instruments navigable.
Brainlab is a world leader in medical navigation, particularly for spine surgery. Brainlab spinal navigation allows for precise positioning of pedicle screws and a considerable reduction in X-ray exposure. This technology allows for more precise planning of incisions and trajectories with any instrument and assists in implant positioning, especially in anatomically critical areas for mini-invasive surgery. Because it requires fewer verification images regarding precise instrument tracking, Brainlab spinal navigation provides less X-ray exposure for the surgical team and the patient.
The planned collaboration between the two companies consists in making Safe Orthopaedics’ off-the-shelf technologies compatible with Brainlab’s 3D spine and trauma navigation technology.
Navigated surgery is highly precise and requires robust associated instrumentation that does not tolerate any mechanical play that would impair surgical precision. This is why Safe Orthopaedics instruments, always new and always sterile, will bring an additional degree of precision and reliability to the surgeon during navigated surgery.
“Safe’s strategy of collaboration with leading players such as Brainlab will enable us to leverage the impact of our technology and consolidate our position as the leader in ready-to-use devices. The compatibility of SteriSpinePS 2nd generation, initiated more than a year ago, with Brainlab navigation will allow us to secure the mini-invasive act and a quick recovery of the patient” comments Thomas Droulout, Technical Director and co-founder of Safe Orthopaedics. “This new surgical technique is now used by several hundred hospitals worldwide, mainly in Europe and the United States, confirming the trend towards conversion of the global market. In addition to recently announced products such as Hickory and Sycamore, which will have a lasting impact on Safe Orthopaedics’ growth, we are preparing for future growth drivers with this partnership.
