ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mazor Robotics Ltd. (TASE:MZOR) (NASDAQGM:MZOR), a developer of innovative guidance systems and complementary products, announced today that a new set of solutions to meet surgeon and hospital needs will be launched at the upcoming North American Spine Society (NASS) 2015 Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL October 14-17 The solutions are being offered as the new PRO (Predictable Renaissance® Operation) product line and Mazor will showcase three applications at NASS designed for spinal deformity, trauma and lateral procedures. A cranial procedure solution will also be showcased. These solutions are combinations of software and hardware, aimed at addressing the needs of surgeons to provide productivity in the Operating Room (OR), while setting outcome predictability as a top priority value.
The PRO product line being showcased will include:
A suite of software and hardware accessories designed to transform the planning and execution of complex deformity spine surgery to help address total correction of the spine.
A solution to enable the guided placement of pedicle screws while the patient is in lateral decubitus position to reduce OR time by eliminating the need to flip the patient into prone position after an extreme lateral procedure.
PRO Scan & Plan™
A software feature that enables compatibility with intra-operative imaging systems to increase flexibility for trauma spine cases by eliminating the need for a pre-operative CT scan, while the 3D planning software assists with challenging anatomy.
A solution for fixed-depth and variable-depth targeting for cranial procedures with a small, frameless platform for easy, unobstructed access to the surgical site for intervention.
