Pixee Medical, a provider of augmented surgical guidance technology, will make its Knee Plus AR computer-assisted orthopedic solution commercially available in the U.S., which is aimed to support Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASCs).
Knee Plus is designed to help orthopedic surgeons perform surgery through the real-time 3D positioning of instruments, right in their field of view. Knee Plus consists of proprietary software using a unique proprietary tracking system running on off-the-shelf smart glasses, with no capital equipment or disposables required.
This solution was launched commercially in January 2021 in Europe and Australia.
“Since our first surgery in the USA in Boston in October 2021, we have organized a successful round of surgeries on multiple clinical sites across the USA. We are now ready and confident to launch the product in the leading worldwide market for orthopedics,” says Sébastien Henry, founder and CEO of Pixee Medical. “Our solution is the only imageless & open platform for total knee surgery available in the US.”
Pixee will soon be adding new features to its Knee Plus platform, with soft tissue balancing, kinematic alignment, and data connectivity. It will also be expanding its portfolio with a mixed reality product for total shoulder arthroplasty and with a cup orientation and leg length controlling AR tool for total hip arthroplasty. Knee Plus is now compatible with surgical hoods.
