RAYNHAM, Mass., Nov. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- OMNIlife science, Inc. ("OMNI™"), an established medical technology company targeting the $15 billion global hip and knee replacement device market, announces that surgeons have completed more than 10,000 total knee replacements worldwide using the OMNIBotics robotic-assisted total knee replacement technology platform. The OMNBotics system enables optimized implant placement using robotics driven by OMNI's proprietary ART™ software. Surgeons can efficiently plan a procedure that is specific to each patient using patented intra-operative 3-D modeling technique that eliminates the need for preoperative CT scans or x-rays and then execute the procedure using the system's patented robotic cutting guide technology.
The OMNIBotics system is modular and portable with a compact physical footprint, unlike most competitive systems, enabling it to be seamlessly incorporated into a crowded OR. The OMNI ART software is designed for flexibility and customization to any surgeon's particular approach to total knee replacement, facilitating a reduced learning curve. The software allows for intraoperative adjustments to be made easily, which can contribute to increased operative efficiency and time- savings, as well as the precise alignment of the implant that many surgeons believe can lead to more rapid recovery and a more natural feeling total knee replacement.
"As an early adopter of the OMNIBotics™ system, I am not at all surprised by the fact that a growing number of orthopaedic surgeons are embracing this technology," said Tod Northrup, D.O., orthopaedic surgeon at Flagler Hospital in St. Augustine, FL. "The results achieved with OMNIBotics in my practice have been consistently excellent for both my patients as well as for the healthcare system. It enables me to perform a truly patient-specific procedure with unparalleled accuracy, providing faster post-operative recovery time and a high level of patient satisfaction in a cost- effective manner."
OMNI expects the demand for robotic precision in the total knee replacement market to increase dramatically and so is dedicated to designing novel complementary technologies and high- performance implants, making it more cost-effective for healthcare providers to offer to their patients. OMNI's unique pay-per-procedure model is anticipated to drive easier adoption of the proven robotic-assisted total knee replacement, eliminating the need for a significant capital investment by the hospital.
"When OMNI's proven APEX Knee™ implant is precisely implanted and aligned by the surgeon with the aid of OMNIBotics technology, the result is a total knee replacement that benefits both the patient and our healthcare system," said Rick Randall, CEO. "Recent market research estimates that in the next five years, more than 20% of total knee replacement procedures will be performed using robotic assistance. The more than 10,000 successful OMNIBotics total knee procedures thus far are an excellent validation that OMNI continues to lead the way in Robotic- Assisted Total Knee Replacement surgery."
