Cleveland-based medical device and technology company Lazurite (formerly Indago) will unveil its ArthroFree wireless arthroscopic camera system at the combined annual meeting of the American Orthopedic Society for Sport Medicine (AOSSM) and the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA), which takes place from July 7-11 in Nashville, Tenn.
“The ArthroFree system incorporates our proprietary low heat, high intensity Meridiem light engine technology with advanced camera, battery and wireless transmission technologies to create the world’s first fully wireless, minimally invasive camera system for the operating room,” says Eugene Malinskiy, CEO and founder of Lazurite.
He adds, “The system is designed to deliver improved OR productivity, patient safety, and economic value through cost-savings, energy efficiency and reduced setup/breakdown times.” Plus, Malinskiy says, “The ArthroFree system is designed to be fully drop-in compatible with current operating room technology.’’
Mark Froimson, MD, chair of the board of managers of Lazurite, also spoke out about the product launch at the AOSSM-AANA annual meeting. “We are looking forward to introducing ArthroFree to hundreds of orthopedic surgeons at this important conference,” he says. “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.”
