7D Surgical has announced that it has achieved CE mark certification for its Machine-vision Image Guided Surgery (MvIGS) system for spinal surgery. This achievement clears the way for 7D Surgical to commence commercialisation efforts of its spinal platform across the European market and additional global regions.
The 7D Surgical MvIGS System utilises a novel and proprietary camera-based technology, coupled with machine-vision algorithms to assist in spinal surgery.
“We are extremely excited to achieve our CE mark. With successful launches already underway in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the Caribbean, we are eager to begin expanding the MvIGS technology into the European spine market,” said Beau Standish, chief executive officer of 7D Surgical. “We are very proud of our team for accomplishing this important milestone and we are continuing our growth and expansion into international markets.”
Through 7D Surgical’s proprietary Flash Registration and Flash Fix technology, the platform offers segmental registration. It utilises visible light to allow spinal surgeons to perform spinal registration swiftly and allows each vertebral body to be registered independently.
“Accomplishing true segmental registration with our Flash Technology has had a tremendous impact on the safety and efficacy of the system, as it results in high navigational accuracy in mobile areas of the spine and complex anatomy,” said Brian Stuart, chief revenue officer for 7D Surgical.
