OrthoPediatrics entered into a 5-year distribution agreement with SeaSpine Orthopedics, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SeaSpine Holdings, to exclusively distribute the 7D Surgical FLASH™ Navigation platform for pediatric applications.
The 7D FLASH Navigation System is the only approved image guidance system that utilizes a novel and proprietary camera-based technology and machine-vision algorithms. The system uses only visible light, reducing radiation exposure by eliminating intra-operative CT (computed tomography) and fluoroscopy for purposes of registration, both of which commonly are used with other technologies. This results in a registration workflow that takes just seconds and allows surgeons to control the system within the sterile field.
“Our commitment to innovation demonstrated by this partnership combined with the recent extension of our distribution agreement with Mighty Oak Medical to sell its Firefly technology is part of our strategy to offer a unique suite of enabling technologies,” said Fred Hite, OrthoPediatrics’ COO/CFO. “Combining these navigation solutions with the most comprehensive pediatric-focused offering of orthopedic product solutions globally, we believe this agreement will also allow us to provide a capital-efficient means of acquiring the 7D FLASH navigation system for our customers, and for the betterment of children everywhere.”
