Cleveland-based medical device and technology company Lazurite Holdings, LLC, announces that it will exhibit its new modular ArthroFree wireless arthroscopic camera system at two upcoming events: the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) in San Diego and the annual meeting of the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) in Las Vegas.
Pre-production demo models of the ArthroFree wireless system will be available for surgeons and physicians to try out for themselves at both meetings.
“We are excited to introduce our ArthroFree wireless camera system at both the upcoming AAOS and SAGES meetings,” says Eugene Malinskiy, CEO and founder of Lazurite. “While orthopedics is our initial target market, the ArthroFree system is designed for compatibility with various flexible and rigid endoscopes, as well as surgical tower systems that are applicable to gastroenterology, laparoscopy, and the wider endoscopic market. The modular system is designed to be fully drop-in compatible with current operating room technology across specialty areas.’’
The ArthroFree system is expected to be the world’s first U.S. FDA-approved fully wireless, minimally invasive camera system for the operating room. It incorporates Lazurite’s low-heat, high-intensity Meridiem light engine technology with advanced camera, battery, and wireless transmission technologies. Company officials say the system is designed to increase OR productivity, patient safety, and value through energy efficiency and reduced setup/breakdown times.
“We are looking forward to introducing ArthroFree to the orthopedic and gastrointestinal surgeons attending these two important conferences,” says Mark Froimson, MD, chair of Lazurite’s board of managers. “It’s always exciting to see the reaction when surgeons first experience this game-changing, innovative technology. They routinely tell us that ArthroFree’s wireless, user-friendly design is long overdue, and that they look forward to utilizing it in their ORs.”
