Exactech Acquires XpandOrtho -

Exactech acquired XpandOrtho, a designer of soft tissue balancing instruments for knee replacement. Exactech will use the technology to enhance its ExactechGPS® computer-assisted navigation for shoulder and knee replacement. In 2017, XpandOrtho gained FDA 510(k) clearance in for the XO1 Knee Balancing System, intended as a tool for adjustment of soft tissue to reduce instability from flexion gap asymmetry in total knee replacement. The intra-articular device uses sensors within the joint to guide ligament balance, and a pneumatic-based bellows system to wirelessly communicate with a display to provide the surgeon with gap balancing feedback throughout the knee’s range of motion.
