CLEVELAND–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Medical device and technology company Lazurite™ Holdings LLC announced today that it has been selected to participate in the MedTech Innovator 2022 Road Tour Mid-Stage pitch event in Boston, May 10-11. The event will take place at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, co-located with Device Talks Boston.
Lazurite’s new ArthroFree™ Wireless Surgical Camera System recently became the first such system to receive 510(k) market clearance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The ArthroFree System incorporates Lazurite’s proprietary low-heat, high-intensity Meridiem™ light technology along with advanced camera, battery, and wireless transmission technologies. It is designed to deliver improved operating room productivity, patient safety, and economic value through cost-savings, energy efficiency, and reduced setup/breakdown times. The modular system also is designed to be drop-in compatible with patient data consoles, surgical displays and endoscopes found in minimally invasive operating rooms.
The MedTech Innovator Mid-Stage event will feature 30 startup companies that are more advanced, generally having completed a series B or later of funding. Each company will present in two different venues. They will pitch five times in a small group setting to multiple rounds of investors, strategics, and other industry stakeholders during a half day on May 10. Each company will also give a 5-minute pitch to the Device Talks audience on either May 10 or May 11. Five companies will be selected from these presentations to compete for a cash award by the vote of the Device Talks conference audience on their main stage.
