7D Surgical launched its FLASH™ Navigation System into Germany and Switzerland. Multiple units have been placed, with over 30 spinal procedures completed since the start of 2021.
7D Surgical technology is similar to GPS navigation, and is used to create a three-dimensional image for surgical navigation in seconds, resulting in shorter and more efficient spinal procedures.
FLASH Navigation uses only visible light, eliminating the patient and staff exposure to intraoperative radiation. Novel and proprietary camera-based technology is coupled with machine-vision algorithms to eliminate the long-standing frustrations with legacy surgical navigation platforms.
"We are very pleased with the strategic roll-out of our FLASH™ Navigation System into select European countries thus far," said Beau Standish, Chief Executive Officer of 7D Surgical. "The immediate and positive impact of our machine-vision technology on surgical workflows and radiation reduction has strongly resonated with our surgeon customers. We are excited to further demonstrate its full potential to the global healthcare community as we aggressively expand our European presence and international footprint in 2021."
