OrthoPediatrics Enters Japan Market

By Julie A. Vetalice

OrthoPediatrics received Japan regulatory clearance for its RESPONSE™ Spine System for use in pediatric and adult patients. The product will be distributed regionally through an exclusive agreement with Robert Reid.

RESPONSE launched in the U.S. in 2015. The system features low-profile screws, simple rod reduction and de-rotation instrumentation.

Within 1Q16, OrthoPediatrics entered into an exclusive partnership with SpineGuard for distribution of PediGuard probes, as a complement to RESPONSE for pediatric spinal deformity cases.
