Orthofix Medical entered into a partnership and investment agreement with nView medical to jointly develop and co-market nView systems with Orthofix cervical spine and pediatric limb deformity correction procedural solutions.
The nView s1™ system with insta-3D™ technology is an FDA 510(k)-cleared imaging system that features the ability to instantly capture 3D images with very low-dose radiation. This approach makes the 3D images available throughout surgery, enabling real time visualization. nView s1 doubles up as a surgical guidance system with GPS-like technology that uses the true representation of the anatomy as maps and incorporates AI technology to augment the surgeon’s understanding of the surgery.
As part of the collaboration, Orthofix will utilize an nView s1 imaging and navigation system in its Lewisville, Texas training facility where they will conduct joint educational programs for surgeon customers. Orthofix and nView medical will work together to gain 510(k) clearances for Orthofix pediatric limb deformity solutions navigated with the nView s1 system. Additionally, the companies will pursue the development of an application of the technology for adult cervical spine procedures using Orthofix’s comprehensive portfolio of cervical solutions.
