Johnson & Johnson Medical Shanghai entered into a co-marketing agreement and research and development agreement with the orthopedic robotics market leader in China, Tinavi. 

 

Four key notes:

2. Tinavi's robotic planform has approval from the National Medical Products Administration in China and includes a robotic arm, intraoperative planning interface and integrated navigation with intraoperative 3D imaging.

3. This agreement aligns with Johnson & Johnson's goal to build a connected environment with technologies to enhance surgical performance, education and monitoring.

4. Tinavi is the only arm-based robotic technology that has multiple indications approved in China.
