Strengthening the Company's Intellectual Property Position for Its Advanced Radar Surgical Tracking and Fast Landmark Registration Technologies
NEW YORK, NY, May 1, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Caira Surgical, the pioneer in radar surgical tracking for navigated and robotic joint replacement surgery, announced today that it received three new patents for its advanced radar surgical tracking and fast landmark registration technologies. These patents support the company's mission to advance joint replacement by innovating surgical solutions that leverage cutting-edge technologies to decrease cost, simplify and streamline surgical workflows and make advanced surgical technology more accessible to surgeons, patients, hospitals, and outpatient surgery centers worldwide.
The issued patents cover elements of Caira's advanced radar surgical tracking and fast landmark technologies. In addition, the company successfully filed for protection in key territories outside of the United States.
"This technology provides the first sub-millimeter-accurate radar tracking system for joint replacement that solves the line-of-sight issue inherent in current optical-navigated systems," said Caira Co-Founder Morteza Meftah, M.D., Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at NYU Langone Medical Center and President of the International Society for Technology in Arthroplasty. "The Caira TKA Radar Navigation System improves on multiple aspects of an arthroplasty procedure and addresses obstacles with current computer-assisted and robotic-navigated systems through lower cost, a simple and intuitive workflow, dependable radar-tracking, and the ability to work with the surgeon's preferred implant system."
"These patents create a broad moat around our unique, proprietary innovations, which provide affordable, reliably accurate surgical tracking unaffected by line-of-sight obstructions," said Caira Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Jon Greenwald. "We are executing a robust IP strategy to drive valuation and protect our unique competitive advantages in key markets worldwide. In addition, we strive to leverage our experienced team's expertise to continuously develop proprietary know-how in key technologies, including advanced circuit design, radar signal processing, and computer-assisted surgical techniques."
