ORTHOsoft Inc. Launches Advanced Computer-Assisted Surgery Tracking Device At Annual American Academy Of Orthopaedic Surgeons Gathering



2/7/2007 2:26:27 PM

MONTREAL, Feb. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- ORTHOsoft, Inc., makers of the Navitrack(R) Navigation Systems, is introducing an advanced Computer-Assisted Surgery tracking device called the Navitracker(TM) at this year's American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Annual Meeting (February 14-16, San Diego Convention Center).

"Navitracker(TM) trials in the North American and European markets have been highly encouraging," said Dr. Louis-Phillipe Amiot, CEO of ORTHOsoft, Inc. "This new CAS tracking device will provide surgeons increased visibility, accuracy, robustness and ease-of-use during hip, knee and spine surgeries," added Dr. Amiot.

Dr. T. Mattes, University of Ulm, Germany used the Navitracker(TM) in a recent trial and commented, "Everyone on my team found these new trackers very easy to handle. Our scrub tech found them quicker to unpack, and most importantly we never lost the tracking even during extensive leg motion or when the trackers were soiled after the use of power tools. With this innovative device there is great potential in reducing operating time since we do not have to clean them anymore during a case. This is definitely a great step towards making navigation simpler in my OR."
