AAOS 2019: OSSO VR Develops VR Training Tool For Smith & Nephew's NAVIO Robot, And More On Orthorobotics
Osso VR partnered with Smith & Nephew to develop a VR training tool that will be showcased at this year's American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons' (AAOS) conference, taking place in Las Vegas from March 12-16. Orthopedic robotic systems continue to draw high interest from surgeons. The recent US FDA clearance of Zimmer Biomet's ROSA total knee replacement system will add competition to the current market dominated by Stryker's MAKO and Smith & Nephew's NAVIO.
C-SATS has been added to the Johnson & Johnson group's expanding robotics technology base, which really found its momentum in orthopedics when Orthotaxy came into the group.
Stryker is enjoying strong demand for its MAKO robotic surgery platform with plans to increase system placements and procedure volumes while working on a next-gen system that would enhance ease-of-use for surgeons and improve accuracy. The company also has plans to expand into other areas of focus, according to analyst reports from this year's AAOS annual meeting in New Orleans. Meanwhile, Smith & Nephew and Zimmer Biomet are trying to set themselves apart with their robotic technologies.
Market Intel: Rivals Catching Up To Intuitive Surgical In Fast-Growing, Fast-Innovating Robotic-Assisted Devices Market
The global market for robotically assisted systems (RAS) is expected to reach $5.3bn by 2021, a CAGR of 11.7%. Meddevicetracker expects this hot market, long-dominated by Intuitive Surgical's da Vinci systems, to see rising competition from innovative companies developing robotic systems that are smaller, portable and less costly and offer surgeons innovative features that allow them to perform even more precise and user-friendly, complex surgeries. In this feature, we'll take a closer look at the overall market, highlighting the competitive landscape as well as limiters and growth opportunities. We'll also take a deep dive into RAS systems and their applications. Surgeons of various specialties provide key insights about the pros and cons of different systems.
