SIGNUS Partners with eCential Robotics for Spine Surgery

eCential Robotics, a French growth company that designs, manufactures and markets the first unified 2D/3D robotic imaging and surgical navigation system for bone surgery indications, and SIGNUS, an international company based in Germany, announced their long-term partnership that will offer a common optimized solution combining navigation, robotics and implant systems.

This partnership offers the eCential Robotics’ platform: As the only available solution that is fully unified, the eCential Robotics platform unifies in its core design intraoperative 2D/3D imaging, navigation and robotics. The eCential Robotics platform is also an open solution, meaning that it can be used with any manufacturer’s implants, and cater to different surgeons’ preferences. Built around a range of applications currently dedicated to spine surgery, the platform will in the future be used for multiple bone surgery indications.

The partnership expands SIGNUS' portfolio: The German company offers a comprehensive product range from cervical spine to sacroiliac joints and with this cooperation welcomes a navigation system in its portfolio. DIPLOMAT® will be the first product to be navigable. The SIGNUS pedicle screw system is a safe, modular and economical fixation system for all interventions on spine.

The navigation will make it possible to fully exploit the specific characteristics of SIGNUS’ pedicle screw system, and then offer an optimization of the implantation proposed to the patient.
