Joimax, a German developer of systems for endoscopic minimally invasive spinal surgery, is presenting its Integrated Navigation Tracking & Control System, Intacs, at the Global Spine Congress in Toronto, Canada.

The company will also be showcasing the new technology at the annual meeting of the German Society of Neurosurgery from May 12 to May 15 in Wurzburg, Germany.

Four things to know:

1. Intracs utilizes electromagnetic tracking, providing simultaneous navigation of multiple instruments such as needles, guiding rods, reamers and endoscopes.

2. It was developed to make planning easier for endoscopic approaches to the spine and other minimally invasive procedures, such as percutaneous fusion.

3. With Intracs, the procedure can be completed without added X-ray control — only starting X-rays are needed — reducing access, intervention time and radiation exposure.

4. The system is CE-marked. Clinical trials and applications are underway in Asia and Europe where Intracs has already launched.
