The platform provides surgeons with intuitive, surgeon-driven software solutions for 3D pre-operative planning and 3D positioners for intra-operative positioning. In a second step, the platform will integrate intra-operative surgical guidance systems that aim to simplify shoulder arthroplasty and create precision in personalized patient care.
This approval is a key milestone for Smart SPACE and provides LimaCorporate the possibility of combining best in class hardware, pioneering 3D printing technologies and now proprietary and patent-protected software. The full roll-out of Smart SPACE will apply to shoulder, hip, and knee arthroplasty.
"With this first important step now achieved, we are on our way to making a significant contribution to transforming how orthopedic surgery is approached today with digital technologies combined with hardware, all in the hands of the surgeon," commented Luigi Ferrari, CEO of LimaCorporate.
