Spine implant provider Spineart has partnered with surgical navigation company eCential Robotics to open augmented spine surgery training centers in the U.S. and Europe.
The partnership will involve research, development, marketing and commercialization, and the companies plan to have training centers for spine surgeons open in 2023.
eCential will also make its interface compatible with Spineart's portfolio of spine implants.
"Combining and leveraging eCential Robotics' technology in navigation and robotics with Spineart's expertise in minimally invasive spine surgery is the ultimate expression of our quality, innovation, simplicity philosophy,'' Jerome Trividic, Spineart's CEO, said in a Dec. 19 press release. "We strongly believe that our combined efforts will rapidly establish the integrated platform as the reference in augmented spine surgery with navigation and robotic assistance."
