Stryker completed the previously-announced acquisition of Mobius Imaging and its sister company, Cardan Robotics, specialists in point-of-care imaging.
As announced at the end of 3Q19, the transaction provides Stryker with immediate entry into the intra-operative imaging segment to complement its implant and navigation offerings. Mobius Imaging is focused on integrating advanced imaging technologies in the surgical workflow. Their Airo® TruCT™ scanner provides real-time diagnostic quality CT imaging. Cardan Robotics had been developing robotics and navigation systems for surgical and interventional radiology procedures, specifically, the Orion spinal robotic system.
“Mobius Imaging and Cardan Robotics bring expertise in advanced imaging and robotics, as well as a robust product pipeline, that will provide Stryker the opportunity to increase its presence in Orthopaedics, Spine and Neurotechnology,” said Spencer Stiles, Stryker’s Group President, Orthopaedics and Spine. “With this acquisition, we are positioned to make healthcare better by providing more complete procedural solutions, including sales, service, and support. We remain committed to our surgeons and helping them achieve the best possible outcomes for their patients.”
