This article was originally published in Clinica
ORTHOsoft, a medical software specialist based in Montreal, Canada, has secured an agreement with Zimmer, the world's largest orthopaedics group. It will develop software and computerised systems to help surgeons implant Zimmer products. The deal covers traditional spine, hip and knee surgery rather than minimally invasive techniques. Zimmer will distribute the products worldwide. ORTHOsoft says the market for computer assisted orthopaedic surgery is growing by 30% a year, helped by ageing populations and demand for improved patient care.
