Stryker launched its Q Guidance system for spine surgery, the devicemaker said Sept. 27.
The Q Guidance system, used with the Spine Guidance software, provides more surgical planning and navigation capabilities, according to a news release. It has a fourth-generation FP800 camera and image processing. The system is designed as a planning and intraoperative guidance system for open or percutaneous computer-assisted surgery.
This is the first spine navigation software to receive FDA clearance for use with pediatric patients 13 and older.
