Medical technology company Accelus opened its new robotic research and development lab in Louisville, Colo., and clinical education and surgical training lab in Carlsbad, Calif., bringing it one step closer to its goal of making minimally invasive surgery the industry standard for spine care.
"Accessibility is a cornerstone of many of Accelus's core value propositions — accessibility to anatomy without compromise and accessibility for patients to receive care with our products in outpatient as well as inpatient facilities both domestically and internationally," Chris Walsh, Accelus CEO and co-founder, said in a May 26 press release. "Giving our surgeons and their staff accessibility to clinical training without necessitating a transcontinental journey creates similar advantages to working with Accelus."
The labs work in conjunction with the company's corporate headquarters and clinical education lab in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
Most of Accelus's Remi Robotic Navigation Systems development team work at the 3,731-square-foot Louisville facility, which opened in late 2021. The space also offers spine surgeon training and clinical staff training on how to incorporate the Remi system into spinal surgeries.
The 5,722-square-foot Carlsbad facility opened in early 2022 and houses the company's second clinical education lab.
