Accelus' Remi spine robot recieved FDA 510(k) clearance for use with GE OEC 9900 C-Arm fluoroscopic imaging systems.
Remi uses 2D and 3D images to assist surgeons with pedicle screw placeent. The robot is already cleared for used with Medtronic's O-arm 3D imaging system, GE OEC 3D, Ziehm Vision RFD 3D and Stryker Airo TruCT imaging systems, according to a news release.
"Most hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) are already utilizing C-arm X-ray fluoroscopy in their surgeries, which means they do not need additional imaging technology to utilize the Remi Robotic Navigation System, thanks to Remi’s most current FDA clearance," Accelus CEO Chris Walsh said in the release. "This allows Remi to be used in smaller hospitals and ASCs and for Accelus to continue to meet the needs of spine surgeons in ways that our competitors have not been able to do."
