Measurement system for surgical guidance successfully tested

Published December 16, 2013

Ortoma is developing a surgical support system for hip knee and spine surgery. The navigational and measuring system Ortoma Guide has been successfully tested in a clinical setting at the orthopedic laboratory at Sahlgrenska University hospital in Göteborg. The accuracy was very promising and showed a measuring precision in surgical positioning better than conventional systems used in the operating room.
“Ortoma have now taken a big step in the development and evaluation of a measuring system to use for the navigation module – Ortoma Guide. This module will be a module in the integrated system Ortoma Treatment Solution says Dr Matts Andersson CTO at Ortoma.

About Ortoma AB (publ)
Ortoma AB develops surgical systems for the planning and positioning of implants in hip, knee and spinal surgery. The purpose of the company’s surgical system, Ortoma Treatment Solution™ (OTS) is to enable surgeons to accurately measure and plan 3D surgery for the placement of joint implants, and during surgery, to optimally position the implant in the patient. Ortoma’s surgical system is aimed at providing better patient outcomes, fewer complications and less follow-up surgeries – and thus better long-term survival rates for implants. OTS is a system that is easily integrated into the processes and routines currently used in surgery, thereby increasing efficiency. Globally, more than 7.5 million orthopedic procedures are performed each year where OTS could be used in hip, knee and spinal surgery. In Sweden, around 42,000 surgical procedures were performed last year, involving hip, knee or spinal surgery. Ortoma’s B shares are listed on Nasdaq First North Growth Market Stockholm.
