7D Surgical received approval from the Health Sciences Authority in Singapore for its Machine-vision Image Guidance System (MvIGS) for spinal navigation. Further, the company completed its first local system sale through its distribution partner, Transmedic.
MvIGS is the only approved image guidance system that uses a novel, proprietary camera-based technology, coupled with machine-vision algorithms. The system uses pre-op CT or MRI images, then employs 3D patient digitization to provide surgical guidance accuracy. Patients can be quickly and automatically registered using only visible light and 7D Surgical's Flash Registration technology. Each vertebral body registers independently.
"We are incredibly thrilled to bring our 7D technology to market in Singapore," said Beau Standish, Chief Executive Officer of 7D Surgical. "We have already delivered this novel technology to the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the Caribbean and are now excited to offer our innovations in the Asian market. Our machine vision surgical innovations improve patient outcomes by reducing surgical risk, improve implant accuracy, increase surgical efficiencies, while eliminating navigation-based intraoperative radiation. Expansion into Asia has been a strategic priority to share our innovations with the global healthcare community."
